Switch, Array, Object – Becoming Clearer

Trying to understand the switch function. I think I understand the basics but through further use should become clearer. 

var count = 2;

function cc(card) {

  // Only change code below this line


        case 2:

        case 3:

        case 4:

        case 5:

        case 6:



        case 10:

        case “J”:

        case “Q”:

        case “K”:

        case “A”:




      if (count > 0){

        return count + ” Bet”;

      } else {

        return count + ” Hold”;

  // Only change code above this line



// Add/remove calls to test your function.

// Note: Only the last will display

cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc(‘K’); cc(‘A’);

I ended up copying and pasting this from the clues section so I could just move past it. Hoping compound learning will kick in.

Other things learnt:

  • An array just stores multiple values. 
  • Objects are arrays too but store many different pieces of information like this:

var car = {type:”Fiat”, model:”500″, color:”white”};

Also, you can use switch statement followed by if & else/if statements.
