Object Oriented Swift 3 - Code Not Compiling

Below is the challenge that i've added code for however it will not compile when i'm pretty sure it's correct. Can anyone help?

Let's get in some practice creating a class. Declare a class named Shape with a variable property named numberOfSides of type Int.

Remember that with classes you are required to write an initializer method.

Once you have a class definition, create an instance and assign it to a constant named someShape.

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

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

let someShape = Shape(numberOfSides: 7)

Figured it out:

I assigned the constant "someShape" within the wrong parts of the brackets.
