# Need help with variables for scavenger hunt

Jun 22, 2021

Hi everyone,

I am trying to create a virtual scavenger hunt where users have to enter three locations where an item is hidden. I have added three text boxes for the answers. I want the slide to show a layer called Correct when all three locations have been entered. I have set up the variables like this:

Show layer Correct if:

Text box 1 is = location 1

or Text box 1 is = location 2

or Text box 1 is = location 3

or Text box 2 is = location 1

or Text box 2 is = location 2

or Text box 2 is = location 3

or Text box 3 is = location 1

or Text box 3 is = location 2

or Text box 3 is = location 3

However, if a user enters location 1 in all three boxes, the layer shows up.

Can anyone help me with how to set up the variables so that the layer only shows if there are different answers in all three boxes?

Thanks!

Hi Yewande, Not sure of your set up, but off the top of my head this may help. If not can you share your file, a more informed view would make it easier to come up with a more fitting solution. At a glance, it looks like you are missing precise Conditions.

There are 6 permutations for the correct answer : 3! = 3 × 2 × 1 = 6Permutations are: 1,2,3 OR 1,3,2 OR 2,1,3 OR 2,3,1 OR 3,1,2 OR 3,2,1

1,2,3Show correct layer IFText Entry 1 = Location 1 AND

Text Entry 2 = Location 2 AND

Text Entry 3 = Location 3

ORShow correct layer IF1,3,2

Text Entry 1 = Location 1 AND

Text Entry 2 = Location 3 AND

Text Entry 3 = Location 2

OR

2,1,3Show correct layer IFText Entry 1 = Location 2 AND

Text Entry 2 = Location1 AND

Text Entry 3 = Location 3

etc. for all six permutations as described above.

Thank you so much. That worked.
