Don't know how to count cards

What is wrong with my code? or does he want the parameter to be a list of cards rather than a single value?

  **Your code so far**

var 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;
   case 7:
   case 8:
   case 9:
     count += 0;
   case 10:
   case "J":
   case "Q":
   case "K":
   case "A":
     count -= 1;
if (count > 0) {
  string = " Bet"
else {
  string = " Hold"
return count + string;
// Only change code above this line

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

Challenge: Counting Cards

Link to the challenge:

You should see an error in the console saying:

" ReferenceError: string is not defined "

Which should point you to those two lines:

string = " Bet"
string = " Hold"

You should ask yourself, what exactly is “string” here?
There’s no definition anywhere in your code so the engine don’t really know what to do.

Oh, yes. I’ve got mixed up with python. I am having a hard time differentiating between the two.
