Keep getting inner class error for Square : Polygon challenge

It seems a few other people have also been stuck here. I have reviewed their code snippets and the responses, but I am still stuck.

        class Polygon
            public readonly int NumSides;

            public Polygon(int numSides)
                NumSides = numSides;
            }//end poly constructor
        }//end class poly

        class Square : Polygon
            public readonly int SideLength;

            public Square(int sideLength) : base(4)
                SideLength = sideLength;

            }//end square constructor
        }//end class square
