Creating a Generic Type Challenge 4/5

Need help trying to make an instance method that appends a number to the end of the array.

generics.swift
struct Queue<Element>{
  var array: [Element] = []

  var isEmpty: Bool {
        if array.count == 0 {
            return true
        } else {
            return false
        }
  }

  var count: Int {
    let index = array.count
    return index
  }

  func enqueue(_ number: Element) {
    array.append(number)
  }

}

You have to put the keyword mutating in front of your instance method

mutating func enqueue(_ element: Element) {
    array.append(element)
}
