C# Problem

when I submit the below code, it gives me this error: Bummer! Did you instantiate the Frog class using the 'new' keyword?

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

           }
            var mike;
        }
    }
}
Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
class Frog {

}
}

The error message is perhaps a bit misleading, since you clearly did use the "new" keyword.

But when creating an instance, the class name should be followed by parentheses instead of braces, and statements should always end with a semicolon.

And the new instance still needs to be assigned to the new "mike" variable:

           var mike = new Frog();
