Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here. Why do I have an error on my last console.log and why is ‘;’ a mistake?

Your code so far

function rot13(str) {
  let decodedResult = "";
  let alphabetStart = "abcdefghijklm".toUpperCase();
  let alphabetEnd = "nopqrstuvwxyz".toUpperCase();

  // console.log(alphabetEnd[4]);

  for (let i = 0; i < str.length; i++) {
    let letterToDecode = str[i];
    if (alphabetStart.indexOf(letterToDecode) >= 0) {
      // console.log(letterToDecode);
      decodedResult += alphabetEnd[alphabetStart.indexOf(letterToDecode)];
    } else if (alphabetEnd.indexOf(letterToDecode) >= 0) {
      // console.log(letterToDecode);
      decodedResult += alphabetStart[alphabetEnd.indexOf(letterToDecode)];
  } else {
    decodedResult += letterToDecode;
  return decodedResult;

console.log(rot13("SERR PBQR PNZC"));

You are getting a syntax error which means you have a mistake in your code. I’ll give you a hint: The number of opening and closing curly braces should be the same.

Thank you for your help,
