Isn't that a Double? why it said it's not a Double?

Isn't that a Double? why it said it's not a Double?

struct.swift
struct Expense {
    var description: String
    var amount: Double = 0.0

    init (description: String) {
        self.description = description
    }
    func calculateTaxes(percentage: Double) -> Double? {
    return self.amount*(percentage/100)
    // add the calculateTaxes method here
    // it should accept only one parameter named 'percentage' of type Double
}
}

var item = Expense(description: "myke")
item.amount = 100
var taxes = item.calculateTaxes(7.5)

Hello Ling:

Your code looks perfect, I’m not sure why is not passing your challenge. I just finished the challenge myself to see what is wrong but can’t seem to find a difference between mine and yours, other than a few spaces that should not affect anything. Anyways here is my code if you want to check yours and see if you can fix it.

struct Expense {
    var description: String
    var amount: Double = 0.0

    init (description: String) {
        self.description = description
    }

    // add the calculateTaxes method here
    func calculateTaxes(percentage: Double) -> Double {
    return self.amount * (percentage / 100)
    }
    // it should accept only one parameter named 'percentage' of type Double
}

var item = Expense(description: "Nike")
item.amount = 100
var taxes = item.calculateTaxes(7.5)
