Stuck on Task 1

It seems i cant solve task 1 no matter what can someone help me on that in order to understand the process?

Square.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Square : Polygon
    {
        public double SideLength { get; private set; }

        public Square(double sideLength) : base(4)
        {
            SideLength = sideLength;
        }
    }
}
Polygon.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class Polygon
    {
        public int NumSides { get; private set; }

        public Polygon(int numSides)
        {
            NumSides = numSides;
        }
    }
}

It doesn't look like you've written any code yet. At least give it your best "good faith" attempt.

In this challenge, you will construct a computed property, using the concepts that were presented in the last video. If you're totally lost, it might help to re-watch the video and pay special attention to the example, notice how computed properties are similar to functions (and also how they differ).

Please show the code you have so far and perhaps I (or someone) can give more specific hints.
