I am stuck in Ruby Operator && || challenge. Can you give me a hint on how to accomplish this.

I just don't understand the questions of what to do.

def check_speed(car_speed)
  # write your code here

end

1 Answer

Hi Juan,

IF the car speed should have at least 40 speed AND other car_speed should have less or equal than 50.

Example:

def check_speed(car_speed)

  if car_speed >= 40 && car_speed <= 50
    return "safe"
  end

end

Is it necessary to have parenthesis? after the "IF"

No, it is not necessary to add parenthesis because it is not complicated. You can experiment with parenthesis but it doesn't make any differences in this question.
