javascript alert not firing in layout.cshtml

I have a layout.cshtml page

I'm trying to get a simple alert('hi'); to fire, but none of the alerts below are firing

 @section scripts{
        <script type="text/javascript">
               alert('hi');
            $(document).ready(function () {

                alert('layout');
               
            });

        </script>
    }

  @RenderBody()


    <!-- PAGE FOOTER -->
    <div class="page-footer">
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">
                <span class="txt-color-white">@ViewBag.Footer</span>
            </div>

        </div>
    </div>


  @RenderSection("scripts", required: false)

Can not use @section scripts and @RenderSection("scripts", required: false) in same page.
Miguel OzSenior Software EngineerCommented:
AS posted previously do not use section script in the layout code. Section script is used on the other pages that use your layout so that all scripts appear in just one place  of your page. Typically they are added at the end of your body element page. For example:
 <body>
	@RenderBody()
    <!-- PAGE FOOTER -->
    <div class="page-footer">
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">
                <span class="txt-color-white">@ViewBag.Footer</span>
            </div>

        </div>
    </div>
	
	<!-- Scrips go here, easy to spot and troubleshoot when debugging in browser -->
	<script type="text/javascript">
		   alert('hi');
		$(document).ready(function () {

			alert('layout');
		   
		});

	</script>
	@RenderSection("scripts", required: false) 
 </body>
