The init input name in the class and in the instance don't match. Its "numberOfSides" in the class and "sides" in the instance, they need to be the same.

Sahan Balasuriya if you're not already, it's helpful to do these code challenges in a playground. That way you can see errors in real time and would be easier to find the issue!

// Enter your code below
class Shape {
var numberOfSides: Int

init(sides numberOfSides: Int) {
self.numberOfSides = numberOfSides
