The code you shared does nothing except initialize an empty `remainder` variable. Without knowing what solution(s) you have actually tried and thought would work, we can’t help.

#3
``````var Remainder = 11 % 3 = 2
var Remainder = 11 / 3 =2
etc
``````

#4

`%` is an operator the same way that `+` and `-` are operators.
If the instructions told you to “Set `someVar` equal to the sum of 2 and 3” you wouldn’t do

``````var someVar = 2 + 3 = 5;
``````

You would just do

``````var someVar = 2 + 3;
``````

#5

Tell us what’s happening:

``````
// Only change code below this line

var remainder;
var x = 11;
var y = 3;
var z = x % y;

``````

#6

Set `remainder` equal to the remainder of 11 divided by 3 using the remainder (%) operator.

What are x, y and z? As the OP did earlier this year, you have an undefined variable `remainder`, you haven’t set the value of it to anything

thank you i corrected my mistake i suppose to
var remainder = 11 % 3;
something like that
