C# C# Objects Methods Method Overloading

C# method overloading task 2

Add a second parameter to the constructor named reactionTime after the existing parameter and use it to initialize the value of the ReactionTime field. Have no idea how to do this, please help.

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        public readonly int TongueLength;

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
        }

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly;
        }

        public readonly int ReactionTime;

}

What the instructions ask you to do is very similar to what the code already does with TongueLength.
So here's the constructor:

        public Frog(int tongueLength)  // <- add the new parameter here
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
            // then add a line here to assign the attribute using it
        }

Thanks for the response. Seems so obvious now you have pointed it out.
