Please could someone help me complete this task?

Not getting any compiler errors but still cant figure out how to get it working.

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        public readonly int TongueLength;

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
        }
        public bool EatFly(distanceToFly)
        {
            bool EatFly = distanceToFly <= TongueLength && distanceToFly >= 0;
            return EatFly;
        }
    }
}

:point_right: You just forgot to declare the type of argument that EatFly takes.

Other than that, good job! :+1:

Optionally, since you compute a boolean return value, you could just return it directly (and you can simplify the test a bit):

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            return distanceToFly <= TongueLength;
        }

You forgot to specify type of distanceToFly (int). Also it helps to separate boolean logic with paren to make it easier to read:

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {
        public readonly int TongueLength;

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
        {
            TongueLength = tongueLength;
        }
        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
        {
            bool EatFly = (distanceToFly <= TongueLength) && (distanceToFly >= 0);
            return EatFly;
        }
    }
}

It says you didnt create a parameter to method distanceToFly. Im getting an error.
