The hint for this exercise is a little confusing, maybe I’m reading it wrong…:

If we want to filter sales_vs_targets to only include the rows where revenue was less than target , we could use the following code:

not_crushing_it <- sales_vs_targets %>%  filter(revenue > target)

Replace the argument of filter() with the condition that will yield the rows where revenue > target .

I am confused at the argument inside filter. I feel like the greater-than sign should be a less-than sign, given the filter wants to include conditions in which the revenue is less than target. The written code seems to filter for the opposite.
