Hide responsive menu with JQuery click

Please help with my JQuery click logic.
currently I can only hide the mobile menu when I click the menu button. I want it to hide when we click on any menu item or anywhere outside the menu as well. What I cannot figure out is how to hide the main menu in mobile mode but not desktop mode and not breaking the sub-menu function.
Code below is in 3 parts first JQuery, then CSS then HTML

(function($) { // Begin jQuery
  $(function() { // DOM ready
    // If a link has a dropdown, add sub menu toggle.
    $('nav ul li a:not(:only-child)').click(function(e) {
      $(this).siblings('.nav-dropdown').toggle();
      // Close one dropdown when selecting another
      $('.nav-dropdown').not($(this).siblings()).hide();
      e.stopPropagation();
    });
    // Clicking away from dropdown will remove the dropdown class
    $('html').click(function() {
      $('.nav-dropdown').hide();
    });
    // Toggle open and close nav styles on click
    $('#nav-toggle').click(function() {
      $('nav ul').slideToggle();
    });
    // Hamburger to X toggle
    $('#nav-toggle').on('click', function() {
      this.classList.toggle('active');
    });
  }); // end DOM ready
})(jQuery);
