Hey Jason,

No worries. You have the right idea - In your print statement, you do not need to call the repeat function(we are adding stuff to it, so no need to call it inside itself). You can just do "print string" and that fixes your problem, everything else is good.

Here is my code for reference:

def repeat(string, times)
  fail "times must be 1 or more" if times < 1
  counter = 0
  loop do
    # YOUR CODE HERE
    puts string
    counter += 1
    if counter === times
      break
    end
  end
end

Hope this helps !
