Hey there, I’m struggling to solve this… can anyone explain the problem in my code?

Your code so far

function attack() {
text.innerText = “The " + monsters[fighting].name + " attacks.”;
text.innerText += " You attack it with your " + weapons[currentWeapon].name + “.”;
health -= monsters[fighting].level;
monsterHealth = weapons[currentWeapon].power + (Math.floor(Math.random() * xp)+1);

In my code above, I’m still getting error. as my understanding to the instruction I should add the result of mathfloor in the result of monster[currentHealth].power and i assign to variable monsterHealth. But still got error.

It looks like you might have an extra set of brackets that could be causing your error?

I’d tried like this… monsterHealth = weapons[currentWeapon].power + Math.floor(Math.random() * xp)+1;

but still got error… and console returned You should add to the weapon[currentWeapon].power.

Math.floor(Math.random() * xp) + 1; ---- looks correct, but in the given example it shows “monsterHealth -=” ?
