Confused on why this isn't working, what am I missing?

I'm confused on what I need to return because the console keeps saying that it can't convert double to string

using System;

class Program

    static string CheckSpeed(double speed)

        if (speed > 65)
           Console.WriteLine("too fast");
        } else if (speed < 45)
           Console.WriteLine("too slow");
        } else
           Console.WriteLine("speed OK"); 

        return speed;

    static void Main(string[] args)
        // This should print "too slow".
        // This should print "too fast".
        // This should print "speed OK".

You need to set a return value at each statement as they are string values. Hope this helps.

return "to fast"; return "to slow"; return "speed OK;

Maybe it's because you're writing a line as a double
