Hi Dharma,

It looks good, but it is not exactly what the Task is asking for. And, it looks like you deleted the code from Task One? All code you enter needs to be there.. you build upon it with each task.

So you need to add back in the code for Task one. Then for task two, it just wants the method... it didn't ask for the equation inside the method or the puts, nor did it ask you to call the method. So, you do have the correct code, you just need to delete the rest that wasn't asked for and put back the method you created in Task 1.

At the end of Task 2, there should be 4 lines of code (2 for each method creation).

Hope that helps.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
