Default Ch 7: Store total error

I'm trying to get the display_cart function to properly total up the purchases and when I follow either the book or the downloaded code, I get the following error:

NoMethodError in BuyController#display_cart
undefined method `total' for #<Cart:0x1a327fc>

I've isolated the issue to the following area:

	def display_cart
		@cart = get_cart
		@purchases = @cart.purchases
		@total = @cart.total
When I replace @total = @cart.total with @total = @cart.price (I know that it isn't going to work) it displays the display cart view properly, sans the total. It seems the @total += item.price in

def add_purchase(item)
		appendFlag = true
		for purchase in @purchases
			if (item.id == purchase.item.id)
				appendFlag = false
				purchase.quantity += 1
		@purchases << Purchase.buy_one(item)
	@total += item.price
I am using Ruby 1.8.2 on Leopard (that's caused other errors) if it matters.

I'm sure it's very simple but I could use some extra help!
