def check_speed(car_speed) # write your code here if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50) puts "safe" else puts "unsafe" end

end

Why these codes do not work?

ruby.rb
def check_speed(car_speed)
  # write your code here
  if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50)
    puts "safe"
    else
    puts "unsafe"
  end


end

Hi Andy,

The syntax is correct, but it is not what the Challenge is asking for. The instructions explicitly ask you to return the strings, but you are using puts. Just fix those up and you're good to go. And remember, Challenges are very specific and instructions need to be followed exactly, or it will result in a Bummer!.

Keep coding! :dizzy: :)
