# The Preview panel didn't return any errors. I'm not sure where I went wrong with my answer

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

init (Description: String, Amount: Double) {
self.description = Description
self.amount = Amount
}

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

}
var item = Expense(Description: "Whatever", Amount: 100)
//item.amount = 100.0
```

Hi Dawn,

There's a couple of points here:

• The question isn't expecting you to amend the initializer
• The `calculateTaxes` function should return a Double not an optional

Your code will work fine in the preview panel as that shows compiler errors. What it doesn't show is the output of the other tests that check the challenge has been answered as expected. That makes the challenges especially tricky as they are expecting the question to be answered in a particular way, not necessarily just by writing 'correct' code.

So, the answer tests will be looking for the `amount` member variable to be assigned on a separate line, for example.

The input code that completes the challenge, entered question by question looks like:

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

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

// add the calculateTaxes method here
// it should accept only one parameter named 'percentage' of type Double
func calculateTaxes(percentage: Double) -> Double{
return (self.amount * (percentage / 100))
}
}

var item = Expense(description: "Hotel")
item.amount = 100
var taxes = item.calculateTaxes(7.5)
```

At this stage, the questions are deliberately quite explicit in how to answer the question - alternative routes are possible but they may cause the challenge to fail as the answer input may not match the precise order expected.

I hope that helps,

Steve.
