var remainder = 11;

```

`=`

means assign the value on the right to the variable on the left. It isn’t like maths. You don’t need to figure what the actual value of the remainder of 11 and 3 is, JS will do that, you just need to set the value of the variable `remainder`

to the sum.

Try this

```
// Only change code below this line
var remainder;
remainder = 11 % 3;
```

Which calculates 11%3 and assigns it to the variable `remainder`

did not work
I put this
// Only change code below this line

var remainder = 11;
remainder = 11 % 3

It says I need to use You should use the % operator
