Stuck on a challenge Comparison Operators task 2
I understand the question but don't understand on how to get a result from a Comparison Operator can someone please explain to me what i'm not understanding?
// 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 = 0 result == isPerfectMultiple

The comparison operator will return a boolean. For example:
let threeIsLargerThanTen = 3 > 10 // false let threeIsSmallerThanTen = 3 < 10 // true let twoPlusTwoEqualsFour = (2 + 2) == 4 // true
So, we want the constant
isPerfectMultiple to be true if
result is equal to 0. We can do this easily:
// Task 1 - Enter your code below let result = value % divisor // Task 2 - Enter your code below let isPerfectMultiple = result == 0
Let me know if this makes sense. As always, it's more important that you understand the why than just getting the challenge right.
