here is the challenge Challenge Task 1 of 1

We need to add getter and setter methods to the fahrenheit property of the Temperature class. Add a getter method to the access the value of the fahrenheit property. Then add a setter method. When the user assigns a value to the fahrenheit property, the setter method will calculate and assign a value to the celsius property. (Note: Celsius = (Fahrenheit-32)/1.8))

1 Answer

Getter and setter methods are a little hard. This was the answer I used that worked.

class Temperature {
    var celsius: Float = 0.0
    var fahrenheit: Float {
        get {
             return (celsius * 1.8) + 32.0
         } 
         set {
              celsius = (newValue - 32) / 1.8
         }
    }    
}
