Use base to initialize NumSides to 4. im lost on how to go about this i tried a number of different things
Hey i feel like im kinda close but i tried a number of things and nothing has worked to Use base to initialize NumSides to 4. Can someone assist?
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;
What you have for base is correct. It is the semicolon that follows that is causing the challenge to fail.
