Use the compact form of division to divide unstable by 3

int unstable = 25; unstable -= 5; unstable++; unstable--; unstable 3;

Which quiz is this?

## 1 Answer

Ok, I saw from your other posts which quiz it is.

The compact form for division is similar to the subtraction you show above in your second statement.

`unstable /= 3;`

`unstable -= 5` is short for `unstable = unstable - 5` This is saying, "take the current value of unstable and subtract 5 from it. Then store that value back in `unstable`

It's the same idea with division.
