Syntax error "end of input"
I'm not sure why this snippet of code doesn't work. I keep getting the same error message and it basically says it expects the keyword end. I'm not sure what this means. Any thoughts? I've posted the instructions below for ease.
The method below checks the speed of a car and returns a string value: either "safe" or "unsafe". Return "safe" if: The car_speed passed in as an argument is greater than or equal to the number 40. The car_speed passed in as an argument is less than or equal to the number 50. Otherwise, return "unsafe". Hint: You should use the && logical operator to accomplish this task. :)
def check_speed(car_speed) if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50) puts "safe" else puts "unsafe" end

You're really close. There are just two things:
- You didn't close out the method (there is a missing
- The challenge explicitly asks you to
returnthe strings, but you are using
Just fix up those two things and you're good to go.
Keep Coding! :)
Thanks. I'm sure Beginners are always indebted to ppl who already know their stuff:).
