Class Instance

Hey Guys! How do I create an instance an assign it to an constant? I don't get it... Thanks!

classes.swift
// Enter your code below
class Shape {
    var numberOfSides: Int
    init(numberOfSides: Int) {
        self.numberOfSides = numberOfSides
    }

    let someShape = Shape(numberOfSides: 5)

Hey Eli,

Looks like you've just missed one closing curly brace at the end of the class - other than that you've got it totally right! So it should be:

class Shape {
    var numberOfSides: Int
    init(numberOfSides: Int) {
        self.numberOfSides = numberOfSides
    }
}

   let someShape = Shape(numberOfSides: 5)

Hope that helps.

Nikki
