i have a number that will sometimes fall below 0 (negative) how do i check for that give like this please
// $percent_color=getColor(-0.4);
function getColor($n){
    
    // Return default (black) for all other numbers
    if($n==0) return "black";
    
    // Is number between 1 and 5?
    if($n>=0.1 && $n<=10) return "green";

    // Is number between 6 and 50?
    if($n>=11 && $n<=20) return "orange";

    // Is number greater than 50
    if($n>21) return "red";

    // negitive lookup
    
    // Is number between 1 and 5?
    if($n>=-0.1 && $n<=-10) return "green";

    // Is number between 6 and 50?

This bit looks wrong, you have the logic the wrong way around. I have corrected

   // Is number between 1 and 5?
    if($n<0 && $n>=-10) return "green";

    // Is number between 6 and 50?
    if($n<-11 && $n>=-20) return "orange";

    // Is number greater than 50
    if($n<-20) return "red";

Thanks

this bit I edited wrong

// Is number between 6 and 50?
     if($n<-11 && $n>=-20) return "orange";


should be

// Is number between 6 and 50?
     if($n<-10 && $n>=-20) return "orange";

otherwise you will miss if the value is -11
