hello was just wondering if there was more of a simpler way of write this type of code , and if so how

First thing I see when I take a look is you don't have to define all the variables in each IF statement. At the very least, just defining var shirtsPrice = 3 at the top and leaving it out of every IF statement would clean it up a bit.

You could also just define each of the different parts one time at the top and then change the values in IF statements depending on how many shirts and in how many colors the customer orders.

I'm a little confused by the two5colorPrice, three5colorPrice, etc., all the different vars and what they correspond to. Basically, you should only have to define your variables once and then write one if statement with else ifs to decide the different scenarios.

```shirtsPrice = 3
var totalCost = shirtsPrice + x...
var perShirtCost = x...

if (customer wants 30 or less shirts at one color)
{shirtsprice = this
etc.}
else if (customer wants 30 or less shirts at two colors)
{shirtsprice = this
etc.}
```

Hope this helped at all :D

As Paul pointed out you have a lot of unnecessary repetition here. I suggest you edit your code and repost it.

Hint: Once you have established the user doesn't want 30 shirts or less use a nested if to avoid checking again.

For sure! Glad to have helped :)
