This is not quite what the challenge is asking for.

The challenge says "it would be nicer if the method returned the remainder in a nice full sentence...", so instead of printing the string and returning a value, you should return the string. You won't need to print anything.

Also, your string is not quite what the challenge asked for either. try starting by cutting and pasting the string from the challenge, and then modifying it to use string interpolation to print the values rather than the variable names.

And you won't need to call the function yourself. The challenge will do that.
