Swift Basics Challenge Task help

These are the Task instructions

"In this game of ours, we have an odd scoring mechanism . At the end of the round, if your score is 10, you lose! If it's anything but 10, you win.

Declare a constant named isWinner and assign the results of a comparison operation to check whether the player has won or not. For example, if the total score is not 10, then the player has won and isWinner should equal true. (Hint: Use the NOT operator)"

operators.swift
// Enter your code below

var initialScore = 8
initialScore += 1
let isWinner = !10

You're just about there, and I'll admit this one is a little tricky. isWinner wants to check and and make sure that your score is not equal to 10. In this challenge, our score is tracked in initialScore so you want code that amounts to "isWinner is equal to initialScore is not 10". Does that hint help? If you still don't get it, reply back and I will help you with the solution.

Thank you. I think the thing I was struggling with was the syntax for the != operator. I kept putting something like initialScore = !10 instead of initialScore != 10

Hopefully this helps others!

Did you come from Ruby? Because that form of not syntax seems awfully Ruby-esque to me, and I can see how it could trip you up!
