Nested if then java statements

I'm working on a return/exchange item form, and I have two statements that I can't seem to figure out how to use proper syntax for (that's the error I'm getting on the very last line; I'm probably missing a close curly brace somewhere). Here is the scenario: If the return is past 90 days, the customer is responsible for paying shipping on the exchanged item; if it's within 90 days, they are not. The second "if" is that shipping is 7.95 or 11% of the total, whichever is greater. I have already defined my variables, and this is the "do it" part of my code that needs help:

if(days>90){ //var days is calculated in code above this snippet, and it works in another form field, so that's not the issue

if(amount<72.30){ //amount is a getField defined in var list

event.value = 7.95;

} else{

event.value = ship; //defined as amount*.11 in my var list

} else{

event.value = 0;

}

Tip: it's not "Java". It's JavaScript. This might seem to be just picky, but searching the web for info to learn Java, or looking for help with Java, will give you lots of useless advice.

 

What does it say in the JavaScript console?

Try this:

if(days>90){
 if(amount<72.30)
  event.value = 7.95;
 else
  event.value = ship;}
else
event.value = 0;

I would recommend using curly brackets for each if-condition, even if it's not needed. It would make reading the code much easier.
