I had to finally just look up what to do for this challenge because I could not understand why the code would not work.
Even though I know the answer now, I still don’t understand why I would need to specify strict equality in order for this code to work. I had the right format for everything, except strict equality.
Why wouldn’t just putting one = operator suffice?
If anyone can provide an explanation I would really appreciate it because I would like to actually understand what is going on here.
one equal sign operator is for assigining values to a variable , ala
const x = 2
Means let x have the value of 2.
But two (or three) operators are for checking equivalence of data or variables, example
Means x is equal to y , if the the variables or data on both sides of the operator are equivalent, the statement above will return
true otherwise it will return
The difference between 2 and 3 operators is to check for strict (===) equality, you can read more about that here:
I get it now. I just went through and rewrote the code and tried == to see if I understood it properly and it worked just like === for this particular code, which after reading is what I was understanding.
