[solved] Counting Cards --- what am I missing here

I am attempt to complete this, however I cant figure out what I am doing wrong I’ve read through my code, I even reset everything and typed it all out once again and still cant figure out what I am missing… I’d appreciate any help…

Your code so far

var count = 0;

function cc(card) {
  // Only change code below this line
    case 2:
    case 3:
    case 4:
    case 5:
    case 6:
    count ++;
    case 10:
    case "J":
    case "Q":
    case "K":
    case "A":
    count --;
  if(count > 0) {
    return count + "Bet";
  } else {
    return count + "Hold";
  // Only change code above this line

// Add/remove calls to test your function.
// Note: Only the last will display
cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');

Link to the challenge:

You have spaces that you shouldn’t in your increment and decriment operators. You don’t have spaces that you should in your returned strings.

Ha! Thank you! I never even thought about the spaces, I appreciate your help!

hi…to get the solution that is required, go to the if else chain block

if(count > 0) {
return count + " Bet"; //just add a space before the word Bet as shown here
} else {
return count + " Hold"; //just add a space before the word Hold as shown here

Thanks! I figured it out

if its not posts like these. i would never figure this problem out even with the switch feature… let alone with if statements. its very confusing.

I’m glad that the forum is helping you!
