JavaScript If/else

Hello expert,
Working on a Javascript tutoriaa at Codeacademy.

Input
If
("Jon".length * 2 / (2+1) === 2);
{
    console.log("The answer makes sense!")
} 
else 
{
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?

Thanks.

Line 1 : if MUST BE lowercase
Line 2 : REMOVE the semicolon : ;

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

I'd also say:
if ("Jon".length * 2 / (2+1) == 2) {
    console.log("The answer makes sense!");
} else {
console.log("Error error error");
}

@Sar1973, You just add trouble with your comment
I don't see why you MUST reformat, change position of the bracket...
The following is valid:

if ("Jon".length * 2 / (2+1) == 2)
{



    console.log("The answer makes sense!");



}



else
{




console.log("Error error error");




}
