Hi there! Unfortunately, without seeing your code, this will be hard to debug. The easiest way for us to see your code is for you to provide a "snapshot" of your workspace. On the upper right-hand side of your workspace, you'll find a camera icon. Clicking this icon will create a "snapshot" which you can link here. We can then "fork" or create a copy of it and take a look around.

But take a moment and look carefully at your Point class and make sure there is a method defined named DistanceTo. Make sure both the spelling and capitalization are correct. DistanceTo, distanceTo, and Distanceto would all be considered different methods in C# as everything is case sensitive.

Thank you very much Jennifer,you just made me take note of what i was missing...you are a star!
