# operators swift

Would be glad if someone could help me with this..

Here is the task:

Let's assume we're creating a silly game. In this game every time a user completes an objective (whatever it is) we increment their total score by 1 point.

In the editor below, initialScore is the players current score. Assuming they completed a single objective for this level, let's add 1 point to their score using the increment operator and assign the result to a constant named totalScore.

Remember that the position of the unary increment operator matters. For this task to pass, we want both totalScore and initialScore to have the same value after the increment operation.

operators2.swift
```// Enter
your code below

var initialScore = 8
let totalScore = ++initialScore
```

It worked for me. Just make sure the comment doesn't get changed or you will get an error:

The code should look like this:

```// Enter your code below

var initialScore = 8
let totalScore = ++initialScore
```

Not this:

```// Enter
your code below

var initialScore = 8
let totalScore = ++initialScore
```

This should work:

var initialScore = 8

let initialScore = ++totalScore

If not let me know! Thanks!

Thanks for your help! But it doesn't work..

Thank you! I don't know how I could overlook this mistake :)
