Basic JavaScript - Golf Code

Tell us what’s happening:
Why is my code not working

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 "Hole-in-one!";
  } else if (strokes <= par - 2) {
    return "Eagle";
  } else if (strokes === par - 1) {
    return "Birdie";
  } else if (strokes === par) {
    return "Par";
  } else if (strokes === par + 1) {
    return "Bogey";
  } else if (strokes === par + 2) {
    return "Double Bogey";
  } else if (strokes >= par + 3) {
    return "Go Home!";
  }

  // Only change code above this line
}

golfScore(5, 4);

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Golf Code

Hi @Exvis,

Welcome to the forums! There is only one slight change you need to make for your challenge. In this very first if-statement:

if (strokes = 1) {

You’re actually assigning the value of one to 1. All you need to is add at least one more = sign to make a loose comparison to 1, which would be:

if (strokes == 1) {

There’s more to comparisons than this, though, so you may want to go back and review those before continuing.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:
