function main() { var depth = parseInt(readLine(), 10); //your code goes here var snail = 0; var day = 1; function sum(you){ if(snail < you){ let snail=5; let day =+1; return sum(you) } else{ let snail =+2; console.log(day +1) } } sum(depth); }

Must I change from if to while or for loop??

Ok but yours is wrong

Let me correct it function main() { var depth = parseInt(readLine(), 10); //your code goes here var days = 0, i = 0; while (true) { days++; i += 5; if (i >= depth) break; i += 2; } console.log(days); }

Abraham Samuel Double-check my answer and statements of question. function main() { var depth = parseInt(readLine(), 10); //your code goes here var days = 0, i = 0; while (true) { days++; i += 7; if (i >= depth) break; i -= 2; } console.log(days); } /*The snail climbs up 7 feet each day and slips back 2 feet each night. */

Still wrong

You didn't subtracted the 2 feet each day, On the last day you ought to add 2 cause it won't slip back

Ok thanks for you help if not so wouldn't have gotten it thanks I just followed you. function main() { var depth = parseInt(readLine(), 10); var day=0; for(var len = 0; len < depth -2;){ len += 7 -2; day++; } len +=7; console.log(day) //your code goes here }

Ok no probs
