iOS Swift Basics Swift Operators Working With Operators

Posting results of a comparison operation to isGreater and not just a Bool value

Not sure what is wrong with my code. I understand that the constant 'isGreater' is just the result of a boolean but am not sure what the error code is asking me to do differently.

This may be a 'Durrr...' moment when I'm shown but I've been trying for a while and can't get past it.

Thanks guys

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 = result == 0

 let isGreater = someOperation  anotherOperation

Your logic is spot on, so don't beat yourself up too much!

The only problem is the way you're representing the greater than or equal to operator. Kudos to using the legitimate mathematical symbol by the way! In Swift however, it's represented simply by using ">=".

Similarly, less than or equal would equate to "<=", whilst equal to is represented as "==".

Fix up that operator, and you should be able to continue on your way. I hope that helped!
