I've tried so many things but I can't seem to get it. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

You're looking at an "else-if" statement which goes a little something like this:

if(condition){ printf("statement1"); }

else if(condition){ printf("statement2"); }

else if(condtion){ printf("statement3"); }

else{ printf("no matching conditions");


So the first "if" statement is the first condition the computer will look at. If the condition does not match the computer will go to the next if or "else if" statement, and so on depending on how many "else if" statements you have. Lastly, the "else" statement is just a default statement if the answer does not match any conditions. I hope this helps, Good luck!

Try reading about half way down the page on this article (under "Several if + else structures can be concatenated"...)

that doesn't make sense
