I can help! The problem here is that you're printing your result when they asked you to return the result. Did I mention challenges are super picky? You're definitely not the first person to get hung up on this one!

def mod(a, b)
  #write your code here
  c = a % b
  return "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}."  #note the return here
