How to Create an Instance and Assign it to a Constant

Hello. How do I create an instance and assign it to a constant named someShape? Thank you.

// Enter your code below
class Shape{
 var numberOfSides: Int 

  init(someShape: Shape){
   self.someShape = someShape 

1 Answer

I found out the answer. Thank you.

classShape{ var numberOfSides: Int Int(numberOfSides: Int){ self.numberOfSides = numberOfSides } }

let someShape = Shape(numberOfSides: 2)

Original Challenge Question: "Let's get in some practice creating a class. Declare a class named Shape with a variable property named numberOfSides of type Int.

Remember that with classes you are required to write an initializer method.

Once you have a class definition, create an instance and assign it to a constant named someShape."
