iOS Swift 2.0 Basics Swift Operators Working With Operators: Part 2

Result of a comparison?? A comparison between what I don't understand anything.

I can write this with an if or else statement but in this its totally confusing.

operators2.swift
// Enter your code below

var initialScore = 8
let totalScore = ++initialScore
let isWinner =

I find the instructions a bit confusing. But here's what they want:

var initialScore = 8
let totalScore = ++initialScore

let isWinner = totalScore != 10

When they say assign the results of a comparison operation to isWinner, what they mean is you are to create a boolean expression and then assign it (or more accurately, its value) to the constant. If totalScore is 9 then totalScore != 10 will be false, and that value will be assigned to isWinner.

Thxx, and yeh their instructions are really confusing. They should be explicit. They make the ques look too formal. One more thing, your code is right but you said that "if totalScore =9 then totalScore != 10 will be false" how is that possible. It should be true.

Yes! I'm always backwards. I also turn left when I hear right!

9 != 10 is true!! Thanks.
