// Enter your code below

var initialScore = 8
initialScore += 1
let isWinner =! initialScore == 10

You should put the ! in the condition, not where you are assigning the variable.

Example situation (note this isn't the solution, it is a hint):

let isTen =! age == 10  // Incorrect

let isTen = !(age == 10)  // Correct (I'm saying "see if the age is equal to ten, and if it is, set it to false (the ! changes the value) else set it to true

let isTen = age != 10  // Correct (I'm basically saying "age is not equal to 10"

I hope this helps. ~Alex
