Basic Algorithm Scripting: Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

Tell us what’s happening:

not sure whats wrong please help.

SyntaxError: unknown: Identifier ‘fahrenheit’ has already been declared (3:6)

1 | function convertToF(celsius) {
2 | var fahrenheit = celsius * (9 / 5) + 32;

3 | let fahrenheit;
| ^
4 | return fahrenheit;
5 | }
6 |

Your code so far


function convertToF(celsius) {
var fahrenheit = celsius * (9 / 5) + 32;
let fahrenheit;
return fahrenheit;
}

convertToF(30);

Challenge: Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

Link to the challenge:
https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/javascript-algorithms-and-data-structures/basic-algorithm-scripting/convert-celsius-to-fahrenheit

you need to remove this as you already have declared it with var

Try something like this:


function celTo(celsius) {
    return celsius * 9/5 + 32;
}

console.log(celTo(-30));
console.log(celTo(-20));
console.log(celTo(-10));
console.log(celTo(0));

Try and compare the code :slight_smile:

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

Thank you for understanding.
