So what is it asking me to do besides putting an init method and putting description as a parameter?

What am I missing?

struct Expense {
    var description: String
    var amount: Double = 0.0      
    init (description: String) {

It's also telling you that the parameter should be assigned to the stored property description. It says that you will need to write this in the init method. Right now, your init method is empty.

Remember that you can assign parameters within the init to the struct's properties by using .self.

for example -

self.foo = foo
