Logical Operator

Having trouble with this one keep getting an error when I run it

The method below checks the speed of a car and returns a string value: either "safe" or "unsafe". Return "safe" if: The car_speed passed in as an argument is greater than or equal to the number 40. The car_speed passed in as an argument is less than or equal to the number 50. Otherwise, return "unsafe". Hint: You should use the && logical operator to accomplish this task. :)

def check_speed(car_speed)
  number = gets.chomp.to_i
  if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50)
    puts "safe"
  else puts "unsafe"

It looks like your method needs to have the 'end' keyword added at the end. I see one for your if statement but not the method.
