iOS Functions in Swift Adding Power to Functions Function Parameters

I could not understand because I do not speak English.

In this task we're going to write a simple function that takes two numbers and returns the remainder of dividing one number by the other.

Step 1: Declare a function named getRemainder that takes two parameters, aand b, both of type Int, and returns the value, also of type Int, obtained by carrying out the operation a modulo b. In case you've forgotten, the modulo operator is also called the remainder operator.

Step 2: The local names of the parameters are convenient but they make it hard to figure out the meaning of the function when we call it. Add two external names - value, for the first parameter and divisor for the second.

help me plz.

They want to external names to be 'value' and 'divisor' and the internal names to be 'a' and 'b'. You have it the other way around.

Solution:

func getRemainder(value a: Int, divisor b: Int) -> Int { return a % b }.

keep up boy I don't know English very well but I would finish this.
