How would you define a variable inside an "If" statement? I'm stuck :)

Hello - I'm trying to work through this challenge and I'm stuck! How do you define a variable inside an "If" statement please? Thanks! Emily

ruby.rb
car_speed = 65
speed_limit = 60

if car_speed > speed_limit
  puts "too_fast = true"
end

Please ignore this - if I take out the "puts" and the ""s, it works - though I tried that before and it said "bummer"...
