Stuck using the @property.setter special method

Hey guys,

I'm having trouble getting through this challenge. I've rewatched the video a couple of times and my intuition is telling me the code should be working but obviously it's not.

Does anyone have a next step I could take to try and resolve this?

Thank you.

class Product:
    _price = 0.0
    tax_rate = 0.12

    def __init__(self, base_price):
        self._price = base_price

    def price(self):
        return self._price + (self._price * self.tax_rate)

    def price(self, price):
        self._price = price + 1

Here's what I think the challenge is: We need to be able to set the price of a product through a property setter. Add a new setter (@price.setter) method to the Product class that updates the _price attribute.

I came up with a simple, no-calculation solution, just limited to what the challenge asked for: @price.setter def price(self, update): self.price = update

Worked for me :) - hope this helps

I think your issue is the +1 that you are adding on to the price. Try without that, see if your code will pass.
