Ruby Ruby Basics Ruby Syntax Method Return Values

How to make a method return a particular value (Ruby)?

Question: Define a method named three that always returns the number 3. Also, define a method named five that always returns the number 5. Neither method should take any arguments. (We know, these methods aren't especially useful. We just want to see if you know how to make a method return a particular value!)

This is all I could come up with. I'm not sure what the answer is

a = 3
  def three
puts a

b = 5
  def five

puts b

1 Answer

def three
     puts 3
