How do I assign the instance of Shape to a constant without returning a compiler error?

I don't know where to 'let someShape = Shape()' so that I can complete the exercise. Constantly getting compiler errors.

classes.swift
// Enter your code below

class Shape {
    var numberOfSides: Int
    init(numberOfSides: Int) {
        self.numberOfSides = numberOfSides
    }
}

let someShape = Shape()

So close!!

class Shape {
  var numberOfSides: Int

  init(numberOfSides: Int) {
    self.numberOfSides = numberOfSides
  }

}

let someShape = Shape(numberOfSides: 6)
