Can't see the mistake I've made

What have I done wrong?

operators.swift
var results: [Int] = []

for n in 1...100 {
    if (n % 2 = 0) && (n % 7 = 0) {
        results.append(n)
    }
}

Hi Hasseeb,

You have two error (well, one error in two spots).

First, lets clear up the usage of the equal sign. A single equal sign (=) is an assignment operator, but you are trying to use it to compare values. For this, you need to be using the double equal sign (==).

Second, the challenge instructions explicitly ask to check for odd numbers, but you are trying to check for even numbers. So, for the first condition, you need to negate the answer using the bang (or "not") symbol (!). This will check and pass only if the modulus is not equal to zero.

Once those are fixed up, you get:

for n in 1...100 {
    if (n % 2 != 0) && (n % 7 == 0) {
        results.append(n)
    }
}

Keep Coding! :dizzy:
