Syntax Error on http://teamtreehouse.com/library/operators-expressions


I believe there should be a semi colon on line 2 of the quiz on the above link.

int unstable = 25;
unstable -= 5 // This line should have a semicolon.

Thoughts? Thanks, Andrew

You do not need the first semi-colon and you do not need to repeat the unstable.

 int unstable = 25;

Hi Michael,

I mean the code above was from the tutorial's question, but was missing the semicolon. I think the question should be updated to include it on the 2nd line.
