Did you define your Square class as an inner class of the Polygon class?

Not sure what i am doing wrong , Keeps asking Did you define your Square class as an inner class of the Polygon class?

Polygon.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Polygon
    {
        public readonly int NumSides;
        public Polygon(int numSides)
    {
        NumSides = numSides;
    }


    class Square : Polygon
    {
        public readonly int SideLength;
        public Square(int sideLength) : base(4)
        {
            SideLength = sideLength; 
        }
    }
}

The message is trying to tell you what's wrong.

Perhaps it should say "You defined..." instead of "Did you define...". But the problem is that the definition of Square is inside the definition for Polygon instead of being at the same level.

Actually, it looks like you're just missing a close brace (}) at the end of the definition of Polygon.
