Functions in Swift

I have looked everywhere else for the answer, but can not find it.

functions.swift
```// Enter your code below
```

I'm not going to simply give you the answer yet, but a hint to get started ... Try using a switch statement within the function to specify the coordinates for each location as a case.

This Code Challenge is asking us to create a function that will return two(2) Doubles (the lat and lon).

To create the function we use the `func` keyword followed by the name of the function, `coordinates`. The single parameter is of type String with the external name `for` and local name `location`. This is how to correctly write this: `(for location: String)`. To return two(2) Doubles, we must use `->` followed by what type we are returning. In this case `(Double, Double)`, two(2) Doubles.

Here is what we have so far.

```func coordinates(for location: String) -> (Double, Double) {

}
```

We can use a `switch` to assign the names of the locations to their own `case` and return the lat and lon values. The return should look the same as `(Double, Double)` but with actual double numbers.

Here's what the `switch` looks like.

```switch location {
case "Eiffel Tower":
return (48.8582, 2.2945)
case "Great Pyramid":
return (29.9792, 31.1344)
case "Sydney Opera House":
return (33.8587, 151.2140)
default:
return (0.0, 0.0)
}
```

```// Enter your code below
func coordinates(for location: String) -> (Double, Double) {
switch location {
case "Eiffel Tower":
return (48.8582, 2.2945)
case "Great Pyramid":
return (29.9792, 31.1344)
case "Sydney Opera House":
return (33.8587, 151.2140)
default:
return (0.0, 0.0)
}
}
```

Kyle, (nice name by the way) Instead of just posting the code for the answer to a code challenge, we try to encourage answers to questions in the Community include an explanation to go along with the code in order to facilitate understanding of the concepts behind the code challenge. Do you think you could edit your answer to include a brief run-down of your thought process for how you answered the challenge?
