not sure what I'm doing wrong?

if anyone could explain why too that would be great.

You're returning the mod which isn't a bad thing, but not what they want. They want you to return the resulting string. Here's the code I used to complete the challenge.

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