is this solution right?

func isDivisilbe (#numberEna: Int, #numberDio: Int) -> (einai: Bool , description: String )? {

    var einai = (false,"is not divisible")

    if (numberEna % numberDio) == 0{

        einai = (true," is divisilbe")


    return einai


if let divisible = isDivisilbe(numberEna: 5, numberDio: 2){

Hi Jim,

The solution you've given is over complicated as per what the challenge is asking for, currently you're using named parameters which isn't required and you're returning a tuple which isn't the required return type, you simply need to return a Bool optional which as the tasks specifies is either true or nil.

See the below code which is similar to your code but follows the task given.

func isDivisible(one: Int, two: Int) -> Bool? {
    if one % two == 0 {
        return true

    return nil

if let divisible = isDivisible(10, 5) {

Please bare in mind your answer is valid but again it doesn't follow along with the task at hand, let me know if any of this is confusing.

Happy coding!
