Why isn't this working?

Why doesn't it work?

class Button {
  var width: Double
  var height: Double

  init(width:Double, height:Double){
    self.width = width
    self.height = height

  func incrementBy(points: Double) -> Double {
      return width + points
      return height + points

Hi Bruno,

You are returning two things from your incrementBy method. The method shouldn't return anything as it is just accessing the member variables.

The method needs to receive a parameter; a number to increment the two instance variables by. It then adds the parameter value to the two variables. Something like:

  func incrementBy(points: Double) {
    self.width += points
    self.height += points

I hope that makes sense.
