Tutorial is not excepting an correct answer. Major problem here.

for my exercise I was to write a single line property for Area of a Square. I am working along side this tutorial with Visual Studio 2019. My answer : public double Area { get => SideLength * SideLength; } is correct and I am stuck because the tutorial is not taking it.

  • you won't need the braces
  • you will not use the "get" keyword
