Challenge Task 2 of 2 Great job with the first task! In this task, we have two math operations. Without computing
Let isGreater = "someOperation" >= "anotherOperation" Let isGreater = "someOperation" <= "anotherOperation"
// 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 == 0) Let isGreater = "someOperation" >="anotherOperation" Let isGreater = "someOperation" <="anotherOperation"

Hi there! You did do a great job on the first step! I feel like you're overthinking the second step a bit. And there's at least one syntax error. You've typed
Let isGreater instead of
let isGreater. Remember, everything is case sensitive. The first example you wrote is almost there. Except that you're comparing strings instead of the value of those variables. Take a look:
let isGreater = someOperation >= anotherOperation
See all that math in the
someOperation and the
anotherOperation that's set up in the beginning? We're going to make the computer do that for us and then tell us which had the bigger number. If someOperation resulted in a number bigger than or equal to the number generated by anotherOperation, the boolean value of
true will be assigned to
Hope this helps!
