So this is what I have

Lesson

Use the strict equality operator in the `if`

statement so the function will return “Equal” when `val`

is strictly equal to `7`

and this is what I understood from it:

so then the line should be onto the if one

then it must be equal to 7

Then we have the example code which is

3 === 3 // true

so then here it should be 7 === 7 so it is equal

then we have the last one which i also changed from 10 to 7

yet when i submite the following it doesn’t pass

why?

```
// Setup
function testStrict(val) {
if (7 === 7) { // true
return "Equal";
}
return "Not Equal";
}
// Change this value to test
testStrict(7);
```
