How many bools can I connect?? e.g.

if((x>j) || (y<t) || (m=c) && (x != 0))

Please pardon any improper syntax, and any guidance is greatly appreciated

(My text doesn't go into great detail with bools, but we're working with classes right now, and in one example there are three "ors" connected in a bool - this type of the thing would be very helpful for my current homework project)

Thanx
Rick

As many as you like

Usually a lot less.
One set of && and one set of || is about the limit of what would be easy to understand and test for.

If you were being pedantic, each bool you add DOUBLES the number of tests you need to perform in order to prove the code is correct. If you get too creative, there's no way that you can test the code.
