My first attempt to add two variables and output the result ended in failure.
var num1 = prompt("Number 1","Enter");
var num2 = prompt("Number 2","Enter");
var num3 = num1 + num2;
alert("Number 3 is "+num3);
When I entered (as an example) 10 for number 1, and 15 for number 2, 1015 was the result in the alert box.
The second attempt was a success, where I created a function to add the two numbers:
var returnvalue = term1;
for(var i = 0; i < term2; i++)
There may be stupid errors in my code but you get the idea. Now, in the first example, why does it output the numbers as compounded character arrays? Is it because every variable defaults to a char array? If so, how do I change this? I doubt something this basic requires workaround functions like in the second example. Thanks in advance.
