My say method is invalid?
When i attempt to pass my parameters as an argument, it says 'Your "say" method should take exactly 1 parameter.'
def say(first) first end say

Hi there, Isaiah Narraway! There are a couple of things going on here. In the body of the method, it should be using
puts to display whatever was sent in. To call a method, you need a pair of parentheses that will then pass in any arguments needed. In this case, the argument is meant to be the string "Ruby" per the instructions. You're pretty close here, though.
def say(first) puts first # print whatever was sent in end say("Ruby") # call the method and send it the string "Ruby"
Hope this helps!
