const money = 9;
const today = 'Monday' // this should stay as Friday

if ( money > 10 || today === 'Friday' ) { // this needs an and operator
  alert("Time to go to the theater.");    
} else if ( money >= 50 || today === 'Friday' ) {  // this needs an and operator
  alert("Time for a movie and dinner.");    
} else if ( today || 'Friday' ) {  // this needs equal operator
  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.");
