Comparison with the Greater Than Operator


Problem Explanation

· Add the greater than operator to the indicated lines so that the return statements make sense.


Hints

Hint 1

The greater than operator (>) compares both operands using type coercion (converting data types if necessary) and returns true if the first one is greater than the second one.


Solutions

Solution 1 (Click to Show/Hide)
function testGreaterThan(val) {
  if (val > 100) {
    // Change this line
    return "Over 100";
  }

  if (val > 10) {
    // Change this line
    return "Over 10";
  }

  return "10 or under";
}

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

Code Explanation

The function first evaluates if the condition (val > 100) evaluates to true converting val to a number if necessary. If it does, it returns the statement between the curly braces (“Over 100”). If it doesn’t, it checks if the next condition is true (returning “Over 10”). Otherwise the function will return “10 or under”.

The problem I ran into was not changing the first (val > 10) to (val > 100)

function testGreaterThan(val) {
if (val > 100) { // Change this line
return “Over 100”;
}

if (val > 10) { // Change this line
return “Over 10”;
}

return “10 or Under”;
}

// Change this value to test
testGreaterThan(11);
