Why does jquery not work for me

<!doctype html>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>

<h1>Make it blue</h1>

<script src="../Documents/Unnamed Site 2/Delta/resocrces/js/jquery-2.2.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-migrate-1.2.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="../Documents/Unnamed Site 2/Delta/resocrces/js/javas.js"></script>

$(document).ready(function() {

    $(this).css('background-color', '#ffff00');
