Ruby Ruby Basics (Retired) Ruby Methods Method Returns: Part 2

I don't understand where I went wrong on this challenge. I'm supposed use string interpolation inside the method.

I'm trying to get the method to return the following sentence: "The remainder of 'a' divided by 'b' is 'c'. I tried the code below in Workspaces and it would return the sentence correctly but the 'c' value was '0' no matter what 'a' or 'b' value i entered.

def mod(a, b)
  puts "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{a % b}."

puts mod(8, 2)

Charles, you need to return the string, and you don't need the puts statement outside the def. Try this instead:

def mod(a, b)
  #write your code here
  return "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{a % b}."

Thanks, again :-)
