Inheritance task Polygon class

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong in this task. I created a new class and all and I think I've structured my code correctly. Any suggestions?

Polygon.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Polygon
    {
        public readonly int NumSides;

        public Polygon(int numSides)
        {
            NumSides = numSides;
        }
    }
}
     class Square:Polygon
        {    
        public readonly int SideLength;
        public Square(int sideLength):base(4)
        {
            SideLength=sideLength;
        }
    }
}

It looks like you just have a typo.

I see more close braces ( } ) than open braces ( { ). In particular, it seems like you have a stray extra one just before your new Square class.

this lesson was confusing.
