You are supposed to assign something to the remainder variable? Have you done that here?

i just did what i did in the code that a published here and it says the remainder should be 2 and stuff. i dont know what to do else :frowning:

I don’t see you assigning anything to the variable named remainder. Have you forgotten how to assign values to variables?

var remainder = 2

11 % 3

Okay so i did this and it says you should add “%” and i dont know where to add it…

In the code you just posted. You assigned the value 2 to remainder. You are supposed to assign the value of 11 % 3 to remainder. See if you can do that instead.

If I write 6 + 3, this will evaluate to a value. All expressions will evaluate to some value. You want to assign the value of the expression to the variable.

I did but it STILL says the same thing look;

// running tests

You should use the % operator

// tests completed

What is the latest code you have tried?

var remainder = 11 % 3

so thats the only thing that there is now. and it says i should add the “%” . but i dont know where to add it.

Maybe you are missing something at the end of the line?

It’s a learning curve. It takes a little time.

Think of going to the gym, and working out muscles in ways you may not have before - there are aches and pains and it just ain’t any fun… but there’s a good reason to keep on going back.

First, you are improving yourself. And second, there’s all of us cheering you on. YOU GOT THIS! :wink:

Coding is all about the details. Imagine you’re having to teach a very literal five-year-old. It takes time to learn the basics, but more and more, you’ll find yourself getting it.

That said, if you’ve been at this for three hours and you’re getting red-eye and really brain-drained, change activities. Step away for a few minutes. Play some air-guitar to bad 80’s music, find a cupcake, walk the dog, go buy a dog… lol

Coding isn’t just about coding - it’s knowing how to research, and knowing when to step away for a few. You won’t learn it all by burning out on the first day. Set yourself reasonable goals, and reward yourself for reaching them.

No worries, we’ve all been where you are. It does get easier.
