freeCodeCamp Challenge Guide: Catch Misspelled Variable and Function Names

Catch Misspelled Variable and Function Names


Hints

Hint 1

Check the spelling of the first two variables against when it is used. Also, reading a text backwards can help with detecting spelling errors. Make sure to check for these common spelling mistakes in English:

  • vowel confusion (a instead of e, i instead of a)
  • i before e
  • ous vs os
  • double letters if certain one-syllable words adding a suffix (like “big” to “bigger”)

Solutions

Solution 1 (Click to Show/Hide)
// 'i' and 'e' swapped in "receivables" and missing 's' in "payables"

let receivables = 10;
let payables = 8;
let netWorkingCapital = receivables - payables;
console.log(`Net working capital is: ${netWorkingCapital}`);
