Can't get past "Counting Cards" test

Tell us what’s happening:
Hey there, can someone please help me?
I really don’t know why my code isn’t working…
Thanks in advance!

  **Your code so far**
  let count = 0;

function cc(card) {
// Only change code below this line
switch (card) {
case 2:
case 3:
case 4:
case 5:
case 6:
count+= 1;
break;
case 10:
case ‘J’:
case ‘Q’:
case ‘K’:
case ‘A’:
count-= 1;
break;
}

if (card > 0) {
return count + ’ Bet’;
} else {
return count + ’ Hold’;
}
// Only change code above this line
}

cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc(‘K’); cc(‘A’);


let count = 0;

function cc(card) {
// Only change code below this line
switch (card) {
  case 2:
  case 3:
  case 4:
  case 5:
  case 6:
  count+= 1;
  break;
  case 10:
  case 'J':
  case 'Q':
  case 'K':
  case 'A':
  count-= 1;
  break;
}

if (card > 0) {
return count + ' Bet';
} else {
return count + ' Hold';
}
// Only change code above this line
}

cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');

Challenge: Counting Cards

Link to the challenge:

“The function will then return a string with the current count and the string Bet if the count is positive, or Hold if the count is zero or negative.”

The return value is based on the value of count. What is your return value currently based on?

Thanks for your help!

I just realized that my return value was based on my card value. I fixed it and its now running :slight_smile:

My code was the exact same as yours and I also could not get it to work. What exactly did you change to get it to work?
