I am making a simple javascript where I ask for three number inputs from the user. The script then returns sum, product, average, largest, and smallest. The largest and smallest numbers are coming out, but not the arithmetic. Hoping someone can tell me what is wrong. Code: ``` ```

If you see these in some published script it is a warning that you are looking at ancient and perhaps unreliable code. Although legal is is a bad idea to omit the braces around a one-line if statement. It is recommended that you place the opening brace following the function, if, else, for, while, do, switch, and try statements on the same line and not on the following line. Apart from that every Javascript statement should be followed by a semi-colon. It is quite possible to disregard this advice, but if you do one day it will rise up and bite you in the undercarriage. __________________ All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
