Help requested with this script

const names = ["Hole-in-one!", "Eagle", "Birdie", "Par", "Bogey", "Double Bogey", "Go Home!"];

function golfScore(par, strokes) {
  // Only change code below this line
if (par >= 1, strokes = 1) {
  return "Hole-In-one!";
} else if (<= par - 2) {
  return "Eagle";
} else if (par - 1) {
  return "Birdie";
} else if (par) {
  return "Par";
} else if (par + 1) {
  return "Bogey";
} else if (par + 2) {
  return "Double Bogey";
} else if (>= par + 3) {
  return "Go Home";
}

  return "Change Me";
  // Only change code above this line
}

golfScore(4, 1);

here’s a link for the problem :sob:

the way they’ve asked this question is so confusing :smiling_face_with_tear:

Hi there, the condition in if statement is not . you should compare strokes with par

If you dont mind me asking how do I do that?

no, you can do like this if( strokes === 1) you return string hole in one and the condition for eagle should be strokes <= par -2

ok lemme try that so it should be like
(strokes <= par -2) returns “Eagle”

yes like that , then let me know

const 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 "Hole-In-one!";
} else if (strokes <= par - 2) {
  return "Eagle";
} else if (strokes = par - 1) {
  return "Birdie";
} else if (strokes = par) {
  return "Par";
} else if (strokes = par + 1) {
  return "Bogey";
} else if (strokes = par + 2) {
  return "Double Bogey";
} else if (strokes = par + 3) {
  return "Go Home";
}

  return "Change Me";
  // Only change code above this line
}

golfScore(4, 1);

Some of the results worked but some didn’t, what should i do?

= is an assignment operator, for checking equality use === operator

these <= and >= operators are fine for conditions but not just =

const 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 "Hole-In-one!";
} else if (strokes <= par - 2) {
  return "Eagle";
} else if (strokes === par - 1) {
  return "Birdie";
} else if (strokes === par) {
  return "Par";
} else if (strokes === par + 1) {
  return "Bogey";
} else if (strokes === par + 2) {
  return "Double Bogey";
} else if (strokes >= par + 3) {
  return "Go Home";
}

return "Change Me";
  // Only change code above this line
}

golfScore(4, 1);

This is the new code what should i change now?

“Hole in one” and “Go Home” are the only ones not returning :sob:

Check for typos. The text you are returning should match exactly what is asked for.

yes check for typos copy paste the text from the challenge. your “names” array has correct text in it
