Multiple Identical Options in Switch Statements what's wrong?

I don’t know why this is not working when I run the test.
I rand the code in console and it works just fine. Am I missing something?

function sequentialSizes(val) {

  var answer = "";

  // Only change code below this line


    case 1:

    case 2:

    case 3:

      answer = "low";


    case 4:

    case 5:

    case 6:

      answer = "mid";


    case 7:

    case 8:

    case 9:

      answer = "high" 



  // Only change code above this line

  return answer;

Hi @HiMyNameIs !

Welcome to the forum!

I have edited your post to include the challenge link, so we know what you are working on.

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

Reread the instructions again and make sure you are assigning the correct values to the answer variable.

Hint: capitalization matters.

Write a switch statement to set answer for the following ranges:
1-3 - Low
4-6 - Mid
7-9 - High


Thanks! how did I miss it… :sweat_smile:

It’s ok, it happens to all of us :grinning:


Yeah, we all make mistakes like that. And yeah, we all feel like idiots when you do it. As you get better, you’ll get better and spotting them, but the mistakes just get more subtle - they never go away completely. Coding is a humbling experience.
