Hey Clifford,

You are are the right track, but variables do not take parameters, so no parenthesis, and they don't have code blocks, so no curly braces. I think you may be confusing it with methods (functions).

Just fix that up and your good to go. Maybe a quick variable declaration review might help a bit too. :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

I already figured it out... I was thing about methods but the instruction says field member .. Thank you so much for help.
