Hi, i'm working on this code challenge and am trying to figure out what "type Location" is. There are Strings, Ints, Bools... and so on but I cant remember working with Location previously. What exactly is it and how do I use it? Ive tried to look it up online a number of different ways and I can never quite pin down what it is.

Could some one break it down step by step on what it is and how to use it with some example code?


struct Location {
    let latitude: Double
    let longitude: Double

class Business {
    let name: String
    let location: Location

    init(name: String, location: Location) {
        self.name = name
        self.location = location

let someBusiness = Business(name: "Diamond Head", location: Hawaii)
