Comparisons with the Logical And Operator Not Working

Comparisons with the Logical And Operator Not Working

Hi. I have gone over my code repeatedly and cannot find where I have gone wrong. Please could someone point me in the right direction?

function testLogicalAnd(val) {
  // Only change code below this line

  if (val <= 50 && val >= 25); {
    return "Yes";
  }
  
  // Only change code above this line
  return "No";
}

// Change this value to test
testLogicalAnd(10);

I also tried the following for the end bit;

   return "Yes";
 }
 return "No"'

Did you mean to put that semi-colon in the line above?

I had it out at first but added it in trying to fix something else. Thank you that did the trick. Really appreciate it @RandellDawson

When you put a semi-colon in, JavaScript assumes that is the end of a statement and does not treat the part in { } as code that should only execute if the condition is true. Instead, the part in the { } just executes as a stand alone block of code.

Thank you for such a detailed reply. I’ll keep this in mind now.
