5/15 [bug, Opera only, fixed] ... make sure you are typing in the format '2 * 2'.

When asked to multiply two numbers together, this is what I wrote:

document.write(263 * 287);

and the reply is:

Oops, try again. MULTIPLY two numbers. Check out the examples to make sure you are typing in the format '2 * 2'.

I'm sure there's nothing wrong with that - and I've been coding a while! Am I making a silly mistake or is it a glitch?

It's browser-dependent. I could not get it to work using Opera browser, but it works on Firefox.

I agree with this. I've tested also. Safari, IE, Chrome and Firefox are fine. Only Opera gives "MULTIPLY two numbers. Check out the examples to make sure you are typing in the format '2 * 2'."
