# I do not understand why I cannot define the Method with Integers

I have defined the method

def three( 2 +1) puts three

end

puts three

methods.rb
```def three(one, two)
one = 1
two = 2

print

end

puts three
```

This challenge is only looking to see if you know how to make a method return a particular value. So your code is actually trying to do too much. I've added comments to your code below that describe the problems:

```# Your method takes parameters.
# We want a method that takes NO parameters.
def three(one, two)
# There's no need to define any variables
one = 1
two = 2
# Your code should NOT print any values.
# The method should just return a value.
print
end
# You just need to define the methods, you don't need to call them.
puts three
```

You seem to be confusing printing a value with returning it. You should review this section of the preceding video.
