I would imagine the error you get on the line " return a modulo b " is " Consecutive statements on a line must be separated by ';' ".

It is because " modulo " is not a binary operator for the compiler. You need to use " % ".

The short hand notation for modulus in computer programming is %. never spell it out because that is the syntax for English and not Swift. Each language, whether it's spoken or given to a computer, has its own syntax. Understanding syntax will give you foundation you need for any language. Most of the other concepts remain the same.
