Errors with Card Counting

Tell us what’s happening:
I have used the switch code to write this function however when I run the code, I don’t get any results. I have gone through it several times, and I can seem to find the error I made. Please help

  **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++;
break;

case 7:
case 8:
case 9:
count;
break;

case 10:
case "J":
case "Q":
case "K":
case "A":
count--;
break;
}

if (count>0)
{
return count + "Bet";
}
else {
return count + "Hold";
}
return "Change me"
// Only change code above this line
}

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

There should be a space between the number and the word here.

Hi,
I have changed that and it stills doesn’t give me the right results.

Please provide your updated code.

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++;
  break;
case 7:
case 8:
case 9:
  count;
  break;
case 10:
case "J":
case "Q":
case "K":
case "A":
  count--;
  break;
}

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

return "Change me"
  // Only change code above this line
}

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

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

You did not add a space in between the number count and the word Hold or Bet.

I see. I was adding space in the wrong place. It worked. Thank you!
