JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Super Conditional Challenge


Challenge Task 1 of 1

Something's wrong with this script. The value in the variable money is only 9. But if you preview this script you'll see the "Time to go to the theater" message. Fix this script so that it correctly tests the money and today variables and prints out the proper alert message: "It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out"

var money = 9;
var today = 'Friday'

if ( money >= 100 || today === 'Friday' ) {
  alert("Time to go to the theater");    
} else if ( money >= 50 || today === 'Friday' ) {
  alert("Time for a movie and dinner");    
} else if ( money > 10 || today === 'Friday' ) {
  alert("Time for a movie");   
} else if ( today !== 'Friday' ) {
  alert("It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out");   
} else {
  alert("This isn't Friday. I need to stay home.");

Hi, Andrew! Which part of the challenge are you having difficulty with? What have you tried? That will help us give you nudges instead of just giving you the answer. :)

Hi again Andrew!

Take a look at the first line of the if statement. The problem with the script has to do with logical operators. Look into that a little and see if you can figure out the solution.

Here's a link to docs for Javascript logical operators https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Operators/Logical_Operators

I hope I was able to steer you in the right direction :)
