The challenge doesn't want you to specify the number to pass in to the method. It wants you to use a variable to represent a number, such as by using def check_speed(speed), then checking if the value for the variable is less than, more than, or equal to 55.

You should also close your last if statement with end so that the if statement ends and the check_speed class ends.

but i am using the end method to close it.
