This is the original from the challenge. All you are supposed to do is change for logic operators. Nothing else. I don't wan't to post the whole solution though.

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.");
}

all you need to change in the original challenge code is four logical operators. Do not change anything else.

Hi! I finally fixed it. You're right. But i aslo changed the last else if statement, like this :

else if ( today !== 'Friday' ) { alert("This isn't Friday. I need to stay home."); } else { alert("It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out"); }

Thanks to joshthorn!
