Not sure why test is failing

Hi everyone,

I'm not entirely sure what exactly the test would require as I've tried my own code on workspaces and it works fine.

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

I'm sure it has to do with some specific way the test requires (and I've tried multiple other ways), but no luck so far. The test requires you to return the remainder of a and b as c in a string that uses interpolation.

Would be very grateful for any help / suggestions / or even telling me if I did my code wrong.

Thanks in advance!

Nathaniel

end

The failing test has nothing to do with logic, I can promise you. You're simply missing a period at the end of the string. Talk about a picky challenge!

 return "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}."
