    Default Help with "if" statements

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to write an if statement with two conditions, then print some text as a result.

    I'm asking the user for a date, between 1 and 31 - and im trying to say "if (variable <1 OR >31)"...what do I need to enter here in place of "or"?

    Obviously, I'm brand new to this - so ANY help would be appreciated :)

    Thanks

    Default Re: Help with "if" statements

    You have to use complete boolean expressions. You can't do this:

    if(something < 10 || > 20){...

    Instead, you have to do this:

    if(something < 10 || something > 20){...

    This is covered in the basic tutorials here: Equality, Relational, and Conditional Operators (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
