Java Script Input/Output Lesson


I’m trying to follow along but I’m not getting the output like Zsoltan once I enter he below code. I was wondering if an experienced member/admin could look and help identify why?

const ticker = prompt ('Enter your crypto ticker: ');
const amount = +prompt ('Enter the amount you bought: ');

console.log(`You just bought ${amount}${ticker}`);

ok do this. run the following

const x = prompt("enter a number")

then after this run


I get the prompt, I enter my number but it still says undefined.

yes when you get the prompt it will be undefined thats why u neesd to run console.log(x) as a seperate command after u enter the prompt the first time

Here is what i got… I appreciate you helping me out!!!

there must be something your not doing right i dont know how else to explain. look i wouldnt get caught up on this you will litreally never ever be using the console in the browser like this anyway and the same is true for the prompt command. im not sure how else to explain you mjust need to run the commands seperately and it will work

Click “ Default levels ” right next to filter and do make sure that " Info " is checked.

Please see screenshot:


niceone for that @Maki i was unaware of this. @S_dot24 should work for u now
