Can I get the answer to this problem?

Don't understand what they are asking for

operators.swift
// Enter your code below
let value = 200
let divisor = 5

let someOperation = 20 + 400 % 10 / 2 - 15
let anotherOperation = 52 * 27 % 200 / 2 + 5

// Task 1 - Enter your code below
let result = value % divisor
// Task 2 - Enter your code below
let isPerfectMultiple = result

Hi there, milo adam ! This step of the challenge wants to know if the value is evenly divisible by the divisor. For instance, 6 is evenly divisible by 2, but 7 is not. Seven divided by 2 results in 3.5. It can be divided 3 times but then a 1 is left over or is the remainder. This is what the % operator does. It returns the remainder after the division. When any number divided by any other number has a remainder of zero we say that the number is evenly divisible by the second number.

What you're looking for is the comparison of result to 0.

I think you can get it with these hints, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:
