Hi, I was wondering whether in another context, it would be possible to write the function outside the struct?

In other words, once we have created the "struct Point", can we use it as a type for function returns outside the struct itself?

Thank you

Hey yousef kazerooni,

Yes. When you create a Struct, it is a valid type itself. This means you can use it as a return type in your functions or anywhere else you would use a type in Swift.

Good Luck
