Learn Basic JavaScript by Building a Role Playing Game - Step 129

Tell us what’s happening: I am confused I know the Math.floor is put around the number I tried both code segments and still just says use Math.floor

Step 129

In your defeatMonster function, set gold equal to gold plus the monster’s level times 6.7. You can get the monster’s level with the level property.

Here is an example of setting num to num plus 5 * 8: num += 5 * 8. Use Math.floor() to round the result down.

### Your code so far

function defeatMonster() {
//gold += Math.floor(gold * 6.7)
gold += gold * Math.floor(6.7);
}

You don’t want to multiply gold by 6.7, you want to multiply the monster’s level by 6.7 and then take the floor of that multiplication. So first you need to figure out how to do “monster’s level times 6.7”, and then you use Math.floor to round down that result.

gold += monsters[fighting].level * Math.floor(6.7); So i changed the code here to this which I remember doing in a previous lesson and still the same issue

You are on the right path there, but you want to take the floor of the multiplication result, not just the floor of 6.7.

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

here is my code and it works perfectly.
function defeatMonster() {
gold += Math.floor(monsters[fighting].level * 6.7);
}

wrong answer the answer is:
gold += Math.floor(monsters[fighting].level * 6.7);
