UI Color

Could someone tell me what is wrong with my code?

ViewController.swift
class ViewController: UIViewController {
   let blueColor = UIColor(red: 0/255.0, green: 0/255.0, blue: 255/255.0, alpha: 1.0) 

  override func viewDidLoad() {
      super.viewDidLoad()
      // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
  }

  override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
      super.didReceiveMemoryWarning()
      // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.
  }
}

Specifying "255/255.0" for the blue argument is taken as a divide operation, causing it to be set to 1 instead of 255.

But the instructions give you a hint about an even easier way to get the color:

   let blueColor = UIColor.blue

Thank you, I just wanted to use the harder way so that I know how to code complex colors.
