iOS Swift Basics Swift Operators Working With Operators

How can I type "Greater than or equal to" sign on my Macbook?

I've tried option + greater-than sign, but Xcode and Treehouse don't register it.

// 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
let isPerfectMultiple = 0==result
// Task 2 - Enter your code below
let isGreater = someOperationβ‰₯anotherOperation

In Swift, you type >=, not β‰₯. Generally people don't use special characters (aka characters that require you push Alt) when programming. This is because some computers don't let you type those characters easily. Try >= (a greater than sign followed by an equal sign) instead.

Thank you!

No problem :D
