Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit Challenge: Possible Bug

Tell us what’s happening:

So I was doing this challenge and the entered the code below which I did not think would work but it did…I was just wondering if this was the correct way to do it or not…because it gave me a pass. Thank’s for response in advance!

Your code so far

function convertToF(celsius) {
  var fahrenheit = (celsius * 9/5) + 32;
  // Only change code below this line
  celsius = celsius * fahrenheit;
  // Only change code above this line
  return fahrenheit;

// Change the inputs below to test your code

Link to the challenge:

The celsius = celsius * fahrenheit line is incorrect, but unnecessary. In no way does it affect the fahrenheit value.

hmm…I still don’t know why it gave me a pass so I did something right…

It passed because you correctly converted Celsius to Fahrenheit. The second line barely has any consequences (you can actually remove it), so you’re good :+1:
