Code runs in Xcode but in workspace says "Code could not be complied"

Hi, So I have just attempted the challenge in Xcode to double check my code complies, which it does and displays exactly what is asked, however upon pasting it into workspaces it says "your code could not be complied" :( Could anyone help me work out why? Thanks a lot in advanced!

struct RGBColor {
    let red: Double
    let green: Double
    let blue: Double
    let alpha: Double

    let description: String

        red = 86.0
        green = 191.0
        blue = 131.0
        alpha = 1.0

        description = "red: \(red), green: \(green), blue: \(blue), alpha: \(alpha)"

let rgbcolor = RGBColor()

You should include the properties as inputs in the inti method so you can initialize it with any values when you create an object with it. So the init method should look like below.

init(red: Double, green: Double, blue: Double, alpha: Double) {
          self.red = red
          self.green = green
          self.blue = blue
          self.alpha = alpha

          self.description = "red: \(red), green: \(green), blue: \(blue), alpha: \(alpha)"
