I don't understand what I am doing wrong here

I am creating a method with the correct name and returning a bool ...but apperently i am not .. im confused about the error ...

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        public readonly int TongueLength;

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
        }

        public EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {

        bool food = distanceToFly < tongueLength;
        bool notfood = distanceToFly > tongueLength;


            return food;

        }
    }
}

:point_right: I see a couple of issues:

  • You forgot to declare the (bool) return type of EatFly
  • The EatFly function can't reference tongueLength (the property is TongueLength)
  • (optional) The "food" variable isn't needed, you can return the expression directly
  • (optional) The "notfood" line can be eliminated entirely
        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            return distanceToFly < TongueLength;
        }
