Write a method inside the Frog class named EatFly. It should take a single integer parameter named distanceToFly and return a bool value. It should return true if the frog can reach the fly with its tongue, and false otherwise.

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


    }
}

You haven't really asked a question as much as just repeated the challenge prompt, so I'll ask you a couple:

Do you think you understand the challenge? What code have you tried? Where are you stuck?

Some things that might help: A method consists of an access modifier, return type, name, parameters, and a body. So if I was asked to write a method that took in two strings and returned their difference in character count, I'm being asked to create a method that in a basic sort of way looks like this:

public int GetLengthDifference(string first, string second) 
{
    int difference = first.Length - second.Length;
    return difference;
}

For this one you only need to add a method which compares the distance to fly and determine whether or not its less than or equal to the tongues length:

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly) 
        {
            return distanceToFly <= TongueLength;
        }
