Hey Will so I think the original challenge had a 9 assigned to the money variable. If you change the variables you won't pass the challenge. Also remember the challenge wants you adjust what is "INSIDE" the conditional statements, so when the code checks the arguments it will pass TRUE for both conditions. There is a logical operator you want to use here so you can check both conditions.. You notice in this code the operator is the "||". This operator only requires one of the conditions to be true and you want to use another operator. Mr. Piotr gave you a hint. Try to redo it and let us know!
