let areainmeters = area / 10.764 This is not returning the integer value. First example in the binary operator lesson.
In the binary operator lesson, Amit said that this operation will return an integer type, since the value defined for height and width are integer typer. The height and width are used for caluclating the area. The are is then divided by 10.76 to yield the answer in SQ meters.
Only if use double then it works. Like: let areainmeters = Double(area) / 10.764

It will not return an integer value because 10.76 is a double, the return will be a double.

I think the result you experienced in the video is not working due to an update from Apple, so it do not accept that syntax any more.
in case to get it working you can do two things. 1: Store the let/var as a Double like this: let foo = 21.0 2: make swift read the integer as a Duble, like this: Double(House) * 12.764
