# If / Else statement with Bool

Hello,

I don't get this part, actually I'm confused with they tell me to do. Unless I didn't wrote it properly, isn't "hasBonus = true" correct ? Sorry if it is so basic but this much more complicated than swift. :/

variable_assignment.mm
```bool hasBonus;
int powerPoints = 5;

if (powerPoints < 3) {
hasBonus = true;
} else {
hasBonus = false;
}
```

It seems to me you have to swap the true/false assignments, as you don't get a bonus when you have less than three points. More than/equal 3 points will get you the bonus.

variable_assignment.mm
```bool hasBonus;
int powerPoints = 5;

if (powerPoints < 3) {
hasBonus = false;
} else {
hasBonus = true;
}
```

Hope that helps :)

Wow, this doesn't seem to pass! I have no clue what's wrong here...?

Ok, this passes:

variable_assignment.mm
```bool hasBonus;
int powerPoints = 5;

if (powerPoints < 3) {
hasBonus = NO; // FALSE also works
} else {
hasBonus = YES; // TRUE also works
}
```

So the assignment is a bit misleading here:

`Change the value of powerPoints to 5. Then create an if else statement such that when 'powerPoints' is less than 3 'hasBonus' is false, but in all other cases 'hasBonus' is true.`

It seems that code check uses Objective-C, which includes `objc/objc.h` where `YES` and `NO` are defined. But shouldn't that be type `BOOL` then? However, `stdbool.h` is most likely included via `CoreFoundation` in Obj-C, so `false` and `true` should also be available, shouldn't they? I mean, even `TRUE` and `FALSE` are available.

Gabe Nadel, would you mind explaining that very shortly? My C skills seem to be too limited to answer that :(

Apologies to you both. There was a typo in the precompile that checks this code challenge. I have just fixed it and now Martin's first response will pass. Thanks for helping to keep Treehouse neat and tidy!

Yeah, that was quick! Thanks for your response and fixing this, makes me feel a lot better ;)

It works now, thank you all ! :)
