iOS Object-Oriented Swift Complex Data Structures Adding Instance Methods

not to sure why it will not compile

I almost definite that I followed the directions as follows and when i type this entire thing into Xcode, it compiles just fine with the correct answer. Can someone explain my error and demonstrate the correct way to write this line

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String 

    func fullName() -> String {
        let full = firstName + " "  + lastName
        return full



let aPerson = Person(firstName: "Eddie", lastName: "Aguilar")
let myFullName = fullName()

fullName() is part of the struct. Try aPerson.fullName()

let myFullName = aPerson.fullName()
