The || means or whilst && means and. So do you really want to check if something is true OR it is Friday?

i want to display an alert that says "Its friday, but i dont have money to go out"

Yes, in your code you need to compare "money>= number" && "today === Friday". Both must be compared. The || symbols compare and give the alert if only one is true. Also , in your code you have "money < 9". You need it to say "money <= 9". Right now your money equals 9.
