Can anyone give me some help? Very much appreciated! PS. The interactive learning experience at Tree Hosue is great!

Help. Thanks!

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

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

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            bool canEat;

            if (distanceToFly < = TongueLength)
            {
                canEat = true;
            }
            else
            {
                canEat = false;
            }

            return canEat;
        }


    }

:point_right: You just have a typo.

The "less than or equal" operator should be written as :point_right: <= :point_left:, with no space between the symbols.


Also, while your solution is perfectly functional as is (once repaired), you could take advantage of the fact that a conditional expression can be used as a boolean value itself, and condense the method code to a single statement:

            return distanceToFly <= TongueLength;
