How to do FizzBuzz Challenge with Switch Control Flow

Is it possible to solve the FizzBuzz challenge using switch? I attached my attempt below.

I tried several things like switching the "n" type to Bool, Int, and even Any - none worked.

fizzBuzz.swift
func fizzBuzz(n:Bool) -> String {
  // Enter your code between the two comment markers
switch n {
  case n % 3 == 0: return "Fizz"
  case n % 5 == 0: return "Buzz"
  case n % 3 == 0 && n % 5 == 0: return "FizzBuzz"
   case n % 3 != 0 && n % 5 != 0: return n
  }
  // End code
  return "\(n)"
}

First, your code should only go between the comments, in particular you should not change the type of "n".

And a "switch" only matches values to it's argument, it doesn't perform logical tests on the "case" expressions. But you can still do this with a switch by creating a value that can be compared with:

func fizzBuzz(n: Int) -> String {
  // Enter your code between the two comment markers
  var fb = 0
  if (n % 3 == 0) { fb += 1 }
  if (n % 5 == 0) { fb += 2 }
  switch fb {
    case 1: return "Fizz"
    case 2: return "Buzz"
    case 3: return "FizzBuzz"
    default: break
  }
  // End code
  return "\(n)"
}
