// 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 if result == 0 { let isPerfectMultiple = result }

In your version, if result is 0, then we'll create a constant named isPerfectMultiple and it will be the same as result, which is 0.

What they want is for isPerfectMultiple to be a boolean, either true or false. The true or false value will be the result of comparing result to 0. If result is 0, then isPerfectMultiple will be true. If result is not 0, then isPerfectMultiple will be false. We can do it like this:

let isPerfectMultiple = result == 0

The double equals sign compares the two and returns a boolean. The single equals sign takes what's on the right of it and puts it in what's on the left of it.
