    Unhappy Problems with converting Python to JavaScript

    Well... I am taking Python this semester. Our teacher wants us to convert Python to JavaScript without really explaining how or/and expecting us to be familiar with it already
    I googled lots of thing out but now I am stuck because I don't know what I did wrong, so I can formulate my question correctly;

    Python Program I have is pretty simple - it prompts you to enter your first and last name and end your DNA string, "CAG" repeats are counted by another function and the result is passed to function that identified weather you may have huntington's decease or not.

    <p>Enter First Name: <input type="text" size="25" id="firstname" value="">
    <p>Enter Last Name: <input type="text" size="25" id="lastname" value="">
    <p>Enter DNA: <input type="text" size="25" id="DNA" value="" >

    <p><button onclick="alertt(f,l,d,c,p)" style="background-color:pink"><b>PRESS TO FIND OUT RESULT</b></button></p>


    var f = document.getElementById('firstname').value;
    var l = document.getElementById('lastname').value;
    var d = document.getElementById('DNA').value;// DNA string
    var c = countCAG(d); // number of CAG repeats
    var p = prediction(c); //prediction

    function alertt(f,l,d,c,p)
    alert ("First Name: " +f+ "Last Name: "+l+"DNA string"+d+"NUmber of repeats"+c+"Prediction"+p)

    function countCAG(dna)
    var index = 0;
    var index_2 = 3;
    var count = 0;
    while (index < dna.length)
    if (dna.slice(index,index_2) == "CAG")
    return count;

    function prediction(numCAG)
    if (numCAG < 28)
    return "Normal, Unaffected";
    else if (36 >= numCAG >= 28)
    return "Intermediate, Unaffected";
    else if (42 >= numCAG >= 37)
    return "Reduced Penetrance, Affected";
    else if (numCAG > 42)
    return "Full Penetrance, Affected";
    return "invalid Count";

    When I run it there is an issue with countCAG and prediction functions :( I would run each one individually in JS console and I get Undefined, or InvalidString I read that I am supposed to use var in front of each variable, unlike in Python where you just assign variable a value without any add-ons in the front. But JS console seems to recognize both ways of assigning, however var smth=0 immediately evaluates to Undefined, and smth=0, gives me 0... As I said, I am so new to this, and all the basics I learned, I got from online pls don't make fun of me!
    SOMEONE PLS HELP, just point out what am I missing

    This is a Java forum, not a JavaScript forum.

    Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part
