You’re trying to do the computer’s job. 11 % 3 is 2, you don’t need to figure out the answer, set the variable remainder to that calculation


Thanks @DanCouper never knew I was doing it the wrong way…

So the part 11 % 3 is called an evaluation, as we’re asking the computer to evaluate a final result. But when that evaluation is done, it returns some value. By placing the evaluation on the right side of the =, we assign that returned value to our variable.

Thanks @snowmonkey your explanation came handy, well appreciated…
