JavaScript JavaScript Basics Making Decisions in Your Code with Conditional Statements Use Multiple Conditions

Stuck again? What could fix this tried, the && operator but nothin

const money = 9;
const today = 'Friday'

if ( money > 10 || today === 'Friday' ) {
  alert("Time to go to the theater.");    
} else if ( money >= 50 || today === 'Friday' ) {

Hi Ulyssa, so the first conditions in your code are true because of the OR operator, they both have ( today === 'Friday' ) so they will pass. You have to make those conditions false (by using && because both clauses have to be true to pass with &&). Then look at ( today === 'Friday' && money > 10 ). Since you are using an AND operator both clauses have to be true, and right now one is not true, which is why it's not working. Make sense?

Perfect!! Just solved this issue by doing this exact step, thank u so much!!
