Hey,

you have to add an initializer method because this is a class and when you're creating the instance of Shape and assign it to someShape don't forget to give the shape a number of sides as an argument.

Like so:

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

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

let someShape = Shape(numberOfSides: 4)

I hope that helps!

Tobias is right. And you definitely need shape to have numberOfSides: and an int value
