Not sure how to create an instance with this

I've tried many different variations and get errors where I cannot pass the Location into business. So I tried this ode which doesn't make much since but I don't get any errors. However, I'm confused on how to proceed.

classes.swift
struct Location {
    let latitude: Double
    let longitude: Double

    class Business {
    let name: String
    let location: Location

    init(name: String, location: Location) {
        self.name; "my Business"
    self.location = Location(latitude: 8.9, longitude: 9.9)
    }
}

Great start. But the initializer needs to assign the location passed in to the location stored property, and you give them actual values by passing those in when you create an instance:

class Business {
    let name: String
    let location: Location

    init(name: String, location: Location) {
        self.name = name
        self.location = location
    } 
}
let someBusiness = Business(name: "Business", location: Location(latitude: 8.9, longitude: 9.9))

This is not working for me, I'm still getting an error where "location" can't be used because it cannot find an initializer?

Ahhhhh ok, thank you!
