iOS Swift Basics Swift Operators Working With Operators

What am I doing wrong?

I keep getting the error about making sure an operator is not simply an int. I don't see how I have done this wrong.

operators.swift
// 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 remainder = value % divisor
// Task 2 - Enter your code below



let result = remainder = 0
let isPerfectMultiple = result 

1 Answer

First, you should only be creating two variables: result, and isPerfectMultiple. Second, you haven't used the equality operator. What you tried in the result variable is a syntax error, and what you've tried in the isPerfectMultiple variable is an assignment operator.

// 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 //returns the remainder of value divided by divisor
// Task 2 - Enter your code below
let isPerfectMultiple = result == 0 //returns a boolean value (true or false) stating whether result is equal to 0
