Hey there,

Ah so close! Just two mistakes here. One is just a typo you probably didn't notice - your setter method is called price1 not price. just delete the 1. The other error is on the decorator. @property tells python this method will be a property of the object, meaning that it's a method, but it will be used like a variable - it's a getter. When we use a setter, we have to tell python which property is being set when we use our decorator. _price is for internal use only, so we want to use the price property to update it, therefore the setter is decorated with @price.setter.

Hope it helps :)
