assign a variable

I have google it for 30 minutes but still can't complete this one.

I guess this should work int Frog = new Frog(); var mike; But not sure the next step.

Program.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {          

            int Frog = new Frog();
            var mike;
        }
    }
}
Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
 class Frog
    {
        static void Main()
        {          
           int Frog = "";
           var mike = "";
        }
    }
}

You have some extra parts and a few things scrambled up.

  • the instructions ask for an "empty class named Frog", but yours has a "Main" method
  • when initializing a new variable, start with the variable type (such as "Frog") or the keyword "var"
  • after the type, put the name of the variable
  • after the name, an assignment operator ("=")
  • then, to instantiate a class, the keyword "new" followed by the class name
  • finally, after the class name put parentheses to invoke the constructor
