Create a variable named item and assign it an instance of Expense (remember to use the initializer with the description parameter. Enter any description you like). On the next line assign the amount property a value of 100.

I don't understand where my code is wrong. I think that I've done everything correct up until the point where I am asked to assign the amount property a value of 100 but I can't figure out why.

struct.swift
```struct Expense {
var description: String
var amount: Double = 0.0

init (description: String) {
self.description = description
}

func calculateTaxes (percentage: Double) -> Double {
return (self.amount * (percentage/100))
var item = Expense (description: "Whatever works")
let amount = 100
}

}
```

This is in swift

You are the right Track however the item variable should be called outside of the struct . Hope that helps.

```          struct Expense {
var description: String
var amount: Double = 0.0

init (description: String) {
self.description = description
}

func calculateTaxes (percentage: Double) -> Double {
return (self.amount * (percentage/100))
}
}

var item = Expense (description: "Whatever works")
item.amount = 100
```

Great! I was closer than I thought which is reassuring. Thanks a lot!

i have done the same thing as the answer given, but i still got this error

struct Expense { var description: String var amount: Double = 0.0

```init (description: String) {
self.description = description
}

func calculateTaxes (percentage: Double) -> Double {
return (self.amount * (percentage/100))
}
```

} var item = Expense(description: "I know struct") let amount = 100
