iOS Swift 2.0 Basics Swift Operators Working With Operators: Part 2

let totalScore = initialScore

// Enter your code below

var initialScore = 8

var initialScore = 9

1 Answer

var initialScore = 8

let totalScore = ++initialScore

let isWinner = initialScore != 10

First, the increment operator is ++. While initialScore + 1 will increment initialScore, they asked for the increment operator.

Second, you were asked to assign the result to totalScore, not back to initialScore.

Third, you didn't do the comparison (initialScore != 10) or assign the result of that comparison (which will be a Bool) back to isWinner.
