1. ## javascript

Hello,

I am trying to write a javascript that allows a user to enter 2 numbers. The first and last numbers can be either even / odd numbers. If the first number is larger than the last number the answer will be 0. Only the even numbers will be added. For example:

1) if the first number entered is 2, and the last number entered is 8 the answer is 20.
(this is how it works: 2 + 4 + 6 + 8 = 20)
**that is because only the even numbers from 2 to 8 are added.

2) if the first number entered is 3, and the last number entered is 8 the answer is 18.
(this is how it works: 4 + 6 + 8 = 18)
**that is because only the even numbers from 3 to 8 are added.

I am able to get the script to work with the even numbers, like in example 1. However, I am having a problem getting it to work with example 2.

Here is a copy of the script that I am working on:

<script type = "text/javascript">

<!--
var sum = 0, //sum of the even numbers
first, //first number entered by the user
last, //last number entered by the user
evenNum, //for the even number
number1, //first number value
number2; //last number value

//prompt the user for the first number
first = window.prompt("Enter first number", "0");

//prompt the user for the last number
last = window.prompt("Enter last number", "0");

//convert the string value to integer
number1 = parseInt ( first );
number2 = parseInt ( last );

//check to see if the first number is greater than the last number
number1 >= number2 ? "0" : number1

//Check to see if the first number is even
evenNum = number1 % 2 ? number1 : number1 + 1;

for ( var evenNum = number1; evenNum <=number2; evenNum += 2)
sum += evenNum;

//Termination phase

document.writeln( "<br/>The sum of the even integers " + "from " +
number1 + " to " + number2 + " is " + sum );

// -->
</script>

• As per the other "forum"

<script type = "text/javascript">

<!--
var sum = 0, //sum of the even numbers
first, //first number entered by the user
last, //last number entered by the user
evenNum, //for the even number
number1, //first number value
number2; //last number value

//prompt the user for the first number
first = window.prompt("Enter first number", "0");

//prompt the user for the last number
last = window.prompt("Enter last number", "0");

//convert the string value to integer
number1 = parseInt ( first );
number2 = parseInt ( last );

//check to see if the first number is greater than the last number
number1 = (number1>= number2 ? 0 : number1)

//Check to see if the first number is even
evenNum = (number1 % 2==0 ? number1 : number1 + 1)
evenNum2 = (number2 % 2==0 ? number2 : number2 - 1)

for(tempNum = evenNum; tempNum <=evenNum2; tempNum += 2){
sum += tempNum*1;
}

//Termination phase

document.writeln( "<br/>The sum of the even integers " + "from " +
number1 + " to " + number2 + " is " + sum );

// -->
</script>
