Hello expert,
Working on a Javascript tutoriaa at Codeacademy.

("Jon".length * 2 / (2+1) === 2);
    console.log("The answer makes sense!")
console.log("Error error error");

Open in new window

The screen is saying there is a syntax
error at the line that has the 'else' keyword:
' Expected identifier and
instead saw 'else'. Missing semicolon.

But there is a semicolon after the console.log
statement. Any idea why it says it is looking for an identifier?
