iOS Swift Basics Swift Operators Working With Operators


help wanted here please!

In the editor below, you have two constants - value and divisor. Step 1: Using the remainder operator, compute the remainder given the value and a divisor. Assign this value to a constant named result.

Step 2: When value obtained using a remainder operator is 0, this means that the value is a perfect multiple of the divisor. Compare the value of result to 0 using the equality operator and assign the resulting value to a constant named isPerfectMultiple.

// 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 results = value + divisor 
// Task 2 - Enter your code below

Hey there! You are using the + operator in your code example. For task one you want to assign the constant result to the result of using the remainder operator on the value and divisor. Here is a link on how to use that operator Remainder Operator

Also, make sure you use the right name for the constant to pass the challenge. :)

Hiya, I've tried that. But it didn't work. I'm not sure I understand the this bit and I watched the videos on and on. still couldn't pass this "bummer" eh.

Task 1 let result = value % divisor

Task 2 let isPerfectMultiple = result == 0
