Basic JavaScript - Golf Code

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I don’t get why what is only maths, that is 4-2 = 2 needs === and == instead of =
Your code so far

const names = ["Hole-in-one!", "Eagle", "Birdie", "Par", "Bogey", "Double Bogey", "Go Home!"];

function golfScore(par, strokes) {
  // Only change code below this line
if (strokes = 1) {
  return names[0];
}else if (strokes <= par-2){
  return names[1];
}else if(strokes = par-1){
  return names[2];
}else if(strokes = par){
  return names[3];
}else if (strokes = par+1){
  return names[4];
} else if(strokes = par+2){
  return names[5];
} else if (strokes >= par +3){
  return names[6]
}else{
    return "Change Me";
};

  // Only change code above this line
}

golfScore(5, 4);

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Golf Code

Link to the challenge:

= is used for assigning values to a variable in JavaScript. == is used to compare two variables irrespective of the variable’s data type . === is used to compare two variables, but this will check strict type, which means it will check the datatype and compare two values.

I will remember it this time. Very well put. = assigns a value to a variable.
