Tell us what’s happening:

let count = 0;

function cc(card) {

}
else if (card in min || card == 10){
count--;

count = count + 0;
}

// Only change code above this line

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

Challenge: Counting Cards

Try some debugging statements:

``````let count = 0;

function cc(card) {
// Only change code below this line
var add = [2, 3, 4, 5, 6];
var min = [ 'J', 'Q', 'K', 'A'];
console.log(`lo: \${card}`);
count ++;
}
else if (card in min || card === 10) {
console.log(`hi: \${card}`);
count--;
} else {
console.log(`mid: \${card}`);
count = count + 0;
}
if (count <= 0){
return count+" Hold";
} else {
return count+" Bet";
}
// Only change code above this line  oops!
}

cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');
count = 0;
cc(2); cc(3); cc(4); cc(5); console.log(cc(6));
``````

This prints

``````lo: 2
lo: 3
mid: 7
mid: K
mid: A
lo: 2
lo: 3
lo: 4
mid: 5
mid: 6
3 Bet
``````

So, your card sorting is not sorting 5 and 6 into the correct category. Or ‘K’ and ‘A’.
