Golf Code confusion, help

Tell us what’s happening:

I passed with this code but I still don’t understand why it does not work without == or === operator.

Your code so far


var names = ["Hole-in-one!", "Eagle", "Birdie", "Par", "Bogey", "Double Bogey", "Go Home!"];
function golfScore(par, strokes) {
  // Only change code below this line
  if (strokes == 1) {
    return names[0];
  } else if (strokes <= par - 2) {
    return names[1];
  } else if (strokes == par - 1) {
    return names[2];
  } else if (strokes == par) {
    return names[3];
  } else if (strokes == par + 1) {
    return names[4];
  } else if (strokes == par + 2) {
    return names[5];
  } else if (strokes >= par + 3) {
    return names[6];
  }
  
  return "Change Me";
  // Only change code above this line
}

// Change these values to test
console.log(golfScore(2, 5));

it does not work without == or === operator.

What do you mean ? What you would use in their places?

I tried with one equal sign (=) but only first rule applies for all values of argument.

Oh, my bad that I did not revise the lessons. Just found it during the revision. link
