The aim of this puzzle: To multiply and divide the variable `y`.
Walkthrough of the solution: This puzzle demonstrates how the multiplication (`*`) and the division (`/`) operators can be used to update a variable’s value. In the initial code the number 1 is being multiplied to `y`, and then divided against `y`. To solve this puzzle you’ll need to change 1 to be a number higher than that (i.e. 2, or 3, or 4, etc).
Sample code solution:
(Tap below to reveal)

``````var y = 10;
y = y * 5;
print(y);
y = y / 10;
print(y);
``````
