Basic JavaScript: Use Conditional Logic with If Statements Help

Tell us what’s happening:
trueOrFalse(false) should return “No, that was false”

I’ve looked at solutions and am still stumped as to what is wrong. It is still returning a string, leading me to believe I made a typo, however I copied it down to the character. What’s wrong??

Your code so far

function trueOrFalse(wasThatTrue) {
// Only change code below this line
if (wasThatTrue = true) {
  return "Yes, that was true";
return "No, that was false";
// Only change code above this line

= is the assignment operator. It doesn’t do comparisons.

Hey @h0nk,

Extending from @ArielLeslie, In Javascript, == and === are the 2 comparison operator. They each also have their own property.

Oh, thanks so much. I have since moved on and realize that. The error threw me off,.
