How do I set up the setter method for fahrenheit in the Challenge?

I'm having trouble configuring the setter method and I can't figure out how to pass the challenge.

class Temperature {
    var celsius: Float = 0.0
    var fahrenheit: Float {
        get {
        return (celsius * 1.8) + 32.0
      set {
        celsius = (fahrenheit - 32) / 1.8

Hi Seyran,

So your issue is that you aren't using the "new value" of fahrenheit in your setter method.

it should read, celsius = (newValue-32)/1.8. That way you are using the "new value" of fahrenheit you insert to set your celsius value.

I hope this helps!
