Confirm the Ending: algorithm scripting

Tell us what’s happening:

It works in the case of “true” but when it comes to “false” it wouldn’t work.

Your code so far

function confirmEnding(str, target) {
  // "Never give up and good luck will find you."
  // -- Falcor
  let arr =str.split(" ");
  let num = arr.length;
  if(arr[arr.length-1]= target){
    return true;
 else {
   return false;

confirmEnding("Bastian", "n");

Link to the challenge:

The problem is in the line containing your if statement. Look at it carefully and recall the difference between a comparison operator and an assignment operator.

Pay attention to what @ArielLeslie told you.

Also, arr.length will always be 1 because you’re splitting the string using a space, and words don’t have spaces.

Oh, and the target could have more than one character. Take this into account when you fix the condition inside the if statement.
