Why assigning a constant for instance Point?
When i type in the following:
Point(x: 2, y: 2).surroundingPoints(), this gives the same outcome as:
let coordinatePoint = Point(x: 2, y: 2) and then coordinatePoint.surroundingPoints()
I don't understand what the reason is for declaring the constant coordinatePoint first, since it gives the same answer. Can anyone explain?
