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

I'm being told to check my spelling and punctuation in my code

I feel pretty dumb having to ask help on this. But can someone let me know what I'm doing wrong? The challenge asks me to write a method that prints a string that gives the remainder of a divided by b.

Can someone let me know where in my code I'm going wrong?

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

Hi Mark! These challenges are very specific. You can lose the parentheses and add a period before your closing quote marks. Hope this helps!
