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

Use of Multiple Conditions

I feel like I'm missing something really simple, and I am stuuuuck. It's got something to do with || or && operators.

script.js
const money = 9;
const today = 'Friday'

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

You're on the right track! Some of those logic operators are not correct for the decision being made.

Hint: you only need to fix the operators, you won't need to add new comparison expressions.

Steven Parker is correct. You need to think about what the && and || mean and go through the logic of the code one line at a time to see what the output will be given the values for your variables.

But I think another BIG sticking point is that it seems you have changed the code in line 8 to read something different than what it was originally. The ONLY things you needed to change were the operators.

Hope this helps!
