Getting Started with Programming
Decisions, decisions

Nice work on comparisons! Now let's see how we can use comparisons to ask yes or no questions.

Say we want to write a program that asks whether your name is longer than 7 letters. If the answer is yes, we can respond with "You have a long name!" We can do this with an `if` statement:

``````if( "myName".length >= 7 ) {
console.log("You have a long name!");
}
``````

An `if` statement is made up of the `if` keyword, a condition like we've seen before, and a pair of curly braces `{ }`. If the answer to the condition is yes, the code inside the curly braces will run.

Instructions

Check out the `if` statement in the editor.

1. On line 1, add a condition inside the parentheses `( )`.
2. If the answer to the condition is yes, the code inside the curly braces will run. So on line 2, use `console.log` to print out a string.

You can write a condition with a comparison like `10 > 5`:
