How do i make my nav bar transparent when I scroll down and come back when I scroll up or when I hover my mouse over it? I tride to do this with jquery but i didn't really work. Here's My HTML and CSS:

<DOCTYPE html>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="LunchWebsiteCSS.css">
    <!-- Latest compiled and minified CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">

    <!-- Optional theme -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">

    <!-- Latest compiled and minified JavaScript -->
    <script src=""></script>
    <script src=""></script>
                    previousTop: 0
                function () {
                var currentTop = $(window).scrollTop();
                if (currentTop < this.previousTop) {
                    //$(".sidebar em").text("Up"); /* optional for demo */
                    $(".nav").css({ opacity: 0.5 });
                } else {
                    //$(".sidebar em").text("Down");
                    $(".nav").css({ opacity: 0 });
                this.previousTop = currentTop;

    <script src="js/jjquery.js"></script>
    <div class="nav">
            <div class="btn-group">
                <li><a href="#">Browse</a>

                <li><a href="#">Sign Up</a>

                <li>BHS Lunch</li>
                <li><a href="#">Log In</a>

                <li><a href="#">Help</a>



.nav {
height: 35px;
font-size: 16px;
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
width: 100%;
/*border: 1px solid black;*/
/*background-color: #AA3C39;*/
background-color: #AA3C39;
/*opacity: 0.7;*/
position: fixed;


Solution :

This is how you can do it.



    $(".nav").css({"background-color" : "rgba(0,0,0,.5)"});

    $(".nav").css({"background-color" : "rgba(0,0,0,1)"});
