**Challenge:** Finding a Remainder in JavaScript

**Link to the challenge:**

You are using a const value which cannot be changed.

That is why you are getting an error

There are two ways of solving this.

One is by using your code and changing the const into a let.

The second is to find the remainder by using the remainder operator in the line where you initialise the remainder variable.

Since you were given a const variable, I would suggest you use the second method.

i tried these solotion and it worked “const remainder = 11 % 3;”
