Learn Form Validation by Building a Calorie Counter - Step 80

Tell us what’s happening:

The output is declared as a global variable. So I just go head and use output.innerHTML = ‘’; and I don’t understand why this is not working.

Your code so far

<!-- file: index.html -->

/* file: styles.css */

/* file: script.js */
// User Editable Region

function calculateCalories(e) {
  e.preventDefault();
  isError = false;

  const breakfastNumberInputs = document.querySelectorAll('#breakfast input[type=number]');
  const lunchNumberInputs = document.querySelectorAll('#lunch input[type=number]');
  const dinnerNumberInputs = document.querySelectorAll('#dinner input[type=number]');
  const snacksNumberInputs = document.querySelectorAll('#snacks input[type=number]');
  const exerciseNumberInputs = document.querySelectorAll('#exercise input[type=number]');

  const breakfastCalories = getCaloriesFromInputs(breakfastNumberInputs);
  const lunchCalories = getCaloriesFromInputs(lunchNumberInputs);
  const dinnerCalories = getCaloriesFromInputs(dinnerNumberInputs);
  const snacksCalories = getCaloriesFromInputs(snacksNumberInputs);
  const exerciseCalories = getCaloriesFromInputs(exerciseNumberInputs);
  const budgetCalories = getCaloriesFromInputs([budgetNumberInput]);

  if (isError) {
    return;
  }

  const consumedCalories = breakfastCalories + lunchCalories + dinnerCalories + snacksCalories;
  const remainingCalories = budgetCalories - consumedCalories + exerciseCalories;
  const surplusOrDeficit = remainingCalories < 0 ? 'Surplus' : 'Deficit';
 output.innerHTML ='';
}

Pay attention to what is being said

Start by assigning an empty template literal […]

Template literals can be assigned with backticks `` (It’s not single quotes)

Got it! Thanks for pointing this out:)
