Counting Cards: Why isn't it passing?

let count = 0;

function cc(card) {

  // Only change code below this lin

  if ( card >= 2 && card <= 6) { 

    count++

  } else if (card >= 7 && card <= 9) { 

    count += count;

  } else { 

    count--

  }

 

  let result = '';

  if (count > 0) {

    result = 'Bet';

  } else { 

    result = 'Hold'

  }

  return `${count} ${result}`

  // Only change code above this line

}

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

can you repeat how count have to change for each card, and point out how you are doing that in your code?

If positive increment count
If 7, 8, 9 do nothing
If negative decrement count

you sure that’s what is happening? use some console.log()s and check it out

Its really best if you provide the link to the challenge you are working on and a brief description of where you are stuck in the body of your post.

This is the error I’m getting.

Cards Sequence 3, 7, Q, 8, A should return the string -1 Hold
Cards Sequence 2, J, 9, 2, 7 should return the string 1 Bet

Have you double checked what happens when the card is 7, 8, or 9?

Just passed the test. I’m blind as a vat. It was just count not count += count; Thanks
