Can someone please explain the answer to this question for me?

I have no idea why this answer is not working, I've tried the equation in playground and it works correctly.

functions.swift
// Enter your code below
func getRemainder(value: Int, divisor: Int) -> Int {
    let getRemainderSum = value % divisor

    return getRemainderSum
}

Hi! There is nothing wrong with the code, its just that you have forgotten the internal names "a" and "b". For simplicity you could skip the constant and just return the calculation.

  return a % b

Hi Magnus,

Thanks for the quick reply. Would you please be able to write out the entire correct function as I seem to try this and it's still not working. I want to figure out where I am going wrong.

Thanks,

Chris

Don't worry, figured it out :)

func getRemainder(value a: Int, divisor b: Int) -> Int { return a % b }
