Ruby Ruby Basics Ruby Syntax Method Return Values

I'm confused by how to always return the number 3 or 5 here.

I'm asked to define a method that will always return the number 3, and another that will always return the number 5. Neither method should take any arguments. I can't get it to work. Can I get some help?

def three(number)
  puts number

def five(number)
  puts number

There are no arguments so number is out. It may be simpler than you think. Have you tried return 3?
