# Enum Challenge Task

I'm kinda confused why it's saying it was expecting to be type Int but it wasn't. Am I missing something here?

enum.swift
```enum Speed: Int {
case Slow = 10
case Medium = 50
case Fast = 100
}

var turtleSpeed = Speed(rawValue: 10)
```

Hi Peter,

This challenge has caught a few users off guard because of the last example used in the previous video, what the task is actually asking for is the `rawValue` of `Speed.Slow` which we can get by simply using the below code.

```var turtleSpeed = Speed.Slow.rawValue
```
###### Why didn't your code work?

When using the `rawValue` initializer we're simply creating a new instance of the `enum` for that given value, in this case you've specified you want the enum for the `rawValue` of 10 which is `Speed.Slow`, if the `rawValue` couldn't be found a `nil` value is returned instead.

Hope that helps.

This is, how it should look like:

```enum Speed: Int {
case Slow = 10
case Medium = 50
case Fast = 100
}
var turtleSpeed = Speed.Slow.rawValue
```

Have a look on how you should call a enum member or itΒ΄s raw value ;-)

I hope this helped

Remember that when you're creating an enum from a raw value it returns an optional. Something that you will learn in the next chapter In this challenge you need to retrieve the rawValue.

So instead of

```            var turtleSpeed = Speed(rawValue: 10)
```

use this

```            var turtleSpeed = Speed.Slow.rawValue
```

That should work!!

Good luck bro keep it going!!
