How would this challenge be answered?

Assume you are creating a weather app and are provided the temperature in celsius, we need to create a computed property called fahrenheit which will return a commuted value. (Note: Fahrenheit = (Celsius * 1.8) + 32)

Temperature.swift
class Temperature {
    var celsius: Float = 0.0


}

1 Answer

Computed properties are always variables and use curly braces inside of which you return a value based on a previously defined property. So in this case the answer would be:

class Temperature {
    var celsius: Float = 0.0
    var fahrenheit: Float {
      return (celsius * 1.8) + 32  
  }

}
