I'm stuck, pretty confused now. please help!

I don't understand why this is wrong? why do they want the console to print 55.5 and too fast?

using System;

class Program

    static void CheckSpeed(double speed)
        if(speed > 55)

        // YOUR CODE HERE

    static void Main(string[] args)
        // This won't print anything.
        // This should print "too fast".
        Console.WriteLine("Too fast");

Hi Jericoe,

Inside your if statement, you want to output the message "too fast" as a string, rather than the value contained within speed. So just take out speed and add the required output message.

Also, I don't think you want to alter the Main method at all - I'd leave that alone.

Hope that helps!

The error is a way of telling you the method has a hole in it. Hint: All the action happens in the method body - evaluate speed and do something else. In Main you have an action that is correct but in the wrong place.
