Basic js:Counting Cards

Tell us what’s happening:

help fellows am still stuck,can anyone help with a spoiler on the way forward

Your code so far

var count = 0;

function cc(card) {
  // Only change code below this line
    case 2:
    case 3:
    case 4:
    case 5:
    case 6:
    count += 1;
    case 7:
    case 8:
    case 9:
    count += 0;
    case 10:
    case "J":
    case "Q":
    case "K":
    case "A":
    count -= 1;
  return count + (count == 0 ? "5 Bet": "Hold");
  // Only change code above this line

// Add/remove calls to test your function.
// Note: Only the last will display
cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');

Link to the challenge:

  1. You don’t really need to do this count += 0; you can just let the switch break.

  2. You have the string "5 Bet" in your return. You just want " Bet" and " Hold" (note the space in front).

  3. You are not using the correct comparison operator. Try testing the “size” of count against 0.

thank you for your reply, i got 1&2 but can you explain 3 better

Right now you are saying this:

if count is 0
  return count + " Bet"
  return count + " Hold"

How would you test the “size” of count against 0? What operator would you use?

if count is **what?** 0
  return count + " Bet"
  return count + " Hold"

The test is “If count is equal to zero”. How would you normally test whether something is equal to some other value?
