Hiya,

First off, the amount variable is a Double, so you don't need the double quotes around the value you are assigning to it. So, 500.00 not "500.00".

I think that'll get you through it.

Steve.

You're very close!

A) One issue is that you have a numerical (double) argument in quotes, as if it's a string. B) The other is that an init block isn't necessary for the creation of this struct.

struct Expense {
   var description:String
   var amount:Double
}

var travel = Expense(description:"Flight to Cupertino", amount:500.00)

Hope this helps.

thank you.
