my code looks correct...

def check_speed(car_speed) # write your code here if car_speed >= 40 && car_speed <= 50 return "safe" else return "unsafe" end

This won't seem to run

ruby.rb
def check_speed(car_speed)
  # write your code here
  if car_speed >= 40 && car_speed <= 50
    return "safe"
  else
    return "unsafe" 
end

Bummer! SyntaxError: 9cd8b780-0029-4132-a802-f37a1fa8a932.rb:14: syntax error, unexpected end-of-input, expecting keyword_end

You just forgot the end of the if/else statement.

def check_speed(car_speed)
  # write your code here
  if car_speed >= 40 && car_speed <= 50
    return "safe"
  else
    return "unsafe" 
  end # here goes the end
end
