How do I complete the last task of this challenge?

I don't know how to complete the last task of this challenge.

struct Expense {
    var description: String
    var amount: Double = 0.0

    init (description: String) {
        self.description = description

    func calculateTaxes(percentage: Double) -> Double  {
        return (self.amount*(percentage/100))

    // add the calculateTaxes method here
    // it should accept only one parameter named 'percentage' of type Double


var item = Expense(description: "Hello")
item.amount = 100
var taxes = calculateTaxes(amount: 7.5)

In the last step the challenge asked to "Call the method calculateTaxes on the variable item" and assign the result to a new variable named taxes."

simply write this:

var taxes = item.calculateTaxes(7.5)
