C# C# Objects Encapsulation with Properties Property Practice

Why am I getting error CS1519?

I tried compiling the code in the Property Practice exercise and I received the Invader.cs(15,22): error CS1519: Unexpected symbol `=>' in class, struct, or interface member declaration error. I even tried adding parenthesis but to no avail.

namespace TreehouseDefense { class Invader { private readonly Path _path; private int _pathStep = 0;

public MapLocation Location => _path.GetLocationAt(_pathStep);

public int Health {get; private set; } = 2;

public bool HasScored {get {return _pathStep >= _path.Length; } }
public bool IsNeutralized => (Health <= 0);

public IsActive => !(IsNeutralized || HasScored);

public Invader(Path path) //Constructor
  _path = path;


public void Move() => _pathStep += 1;

public void DecreaseHealth(int factor)
  Health -= factor;

} }

Insert bool before IsActive

public IsActive => !(IsNeutralized || HasScored);

so you have this:

public bool IsActive => !(IsNeutralized || HasScored);
