iOS Swift Basics Swift Operators Working With Operators

My answer is not getting accepted in this code challenge

When I type ' let isGreater: Bool = someOperation ≥ anotherOperation', it says 'Bummer! Make sure you're assigning the results of a comparison operation to isGreater and not just a Bool value'. But how else can I assign the results of the comparison? I can't put a message in string as I don't know if the comparison is true or false. Assigning a Boolean value is the only way I can think of. What do I do?!

operators.swift
// Enter your code below
let value = 200
let divisor = 5

let someOperation = 20 + 400 % 10 / 2 - 15
let anotherOperation = 52 * 27 % 200 / 2 + 5

// Task 1 - Enter your code below

let result = value%divisor
// Task 2 - Enter your code below

let isPerfectMultiple: Bool = result == 0

let isGreater: Bool = someOperation  anotherOperation

Hi there! Well, your logic is spot on! In mathematics we write "greater than or equal to" as . However, in Swift we write the same thing as >=. Note that the greater than and equal are two separate characters. By the way, this is not exclusive to Swift. Every programming language I've come across writes it this way.

So, if I make this tiny correction to your code, it passes!

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thanks Jennifer, this really helped and I learned something new( to use >= instead of ≥)!
