Counting Cards- help identify mistake

Tell us what’s happening:

I wrote my code and tried running it. I also verified my code with the hint and tried correcting it but still it doesn’t work.

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:
      return count++;
    case 10:
    case 'J':
    case 'Q':
    case 'K':
    case 'A':
      return count--;

  if (count >0){
    return count + "Bet";
  } else{
    return count + "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:


take a close look at your switch statement. You have a return line of code and a break line of code. Understand the difference between the two and look up what option is better suited inside of a case in a switch block.

I would highly recommend you debug your code.

You can do this either with console.logs or adding the debugger statement and running your code in the browser.

You also need a space between the count and “Bet”/“Hold”. Like @TomerPacific said, using the console to debug is a wise idea.

Your code seems to work fine the only problem is " Bet" , " Hold" - the space to successfully submit.
