Function works in playground but not in editor

The following works in playgrounds but the system won't accept part 2 of this challenge and I don't know why. It accepted the first part with no problem. I feel I followed the instructions correctly:

// Enter your code below

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

let value: Int = a % b
return (value)


let result: Int = getRemainder(value: 10, divisor: 3)

So I watched the video and in it you'll see no parentheses around Int after the arrow

func area(length: Int, width: Int) -> Int {

Remove the parentheses from your function and you'll pass.

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

Thank you Kris ... that worked. When playgrounds "fixed" my code, it added the parenthesis, good to know that it doesn't need it.
