I hit a road block with this challenge. Can someone help?

method.rb
def mod(a, b)
  puts "The remaider of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}"
  return a % b
end

puts mod(3,2)

You have to be careful with that "c", the code challenge gives you a hint "c being a % b" so you can omit c and just put "a % b". And there's no need to call the function. You could do it like this:

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

I hope that helps a little bit
