# I cant seem to get past this part of the tutorial, I did what it asked and my code returns a 'Nice clean string'!

I am trying to go through this tutorial, and I got to a place where it wants me to create a method with 2 arguments that return a good, clean string with "The remainder in the division of a and b is c", and I made a nice string but it wont accept it, I dont know what it wants, the thing looks good to me!

method.rb
```def mod(a, b)
c = a % b
puts "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}"
end
mod(17,4)
```

Try using return instead of puts.

```def mod(a, b)
c = a % b
return "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}"
end
mod(17,4)
```

Hi Michael!

Make sure you add your punctuation! The lesson is very specific on your grammar.

You put:

def mod(a, b) c = a % b puts "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}" end mod(17,4)

You should have put:

def mod(a, b) c = a % b return "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}." end mod(17,4)

Hope this helps!
