Getter and Setter Coding Challenge Help

I didn't feel like there was enough info for this question. I tried so many different combinations and looked at the example. My error is saying did you set _numFliesEaten in the setter and return _numFliesEaten in the Getter. What value am I supposed to set _numFliesEaten to in the setter. Everything I try doesn't work.

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        private int _numFliesEaten;

            public int GetNumFliesEaten()
        {
            return _numFliesEaten;
        }
        public void SetNumFliesEaten(int _numFliesEaten)
        {

        }
    }
}

You're close, but there's a few issues yet:

  • the setter is missing the body code that would copy the argument into the field
  • the setter code will be easier to write if the parameter name is different from the field name
