# The And (&&) Operator Code Challenge

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. :)

ruby.rb
```def check_speed(car_speed)
def check_speed(car_speed)
if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50)
return "safe"
else
return "unsafe"
end
end
```

Out of curiosity, why do you have the method declared twice?

Oh, I didn't even realize I did that.

Remove the first def, you do not need two and remove the brackets from your first if

The () can be used in the if statement. The code and the challenge will still work.

must just be the multiple methods at the top so

Assuming you have your variable car_speed declared

```def check_speed(car_speed)
if(car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50)
return "safe"
else
return "unsafe"
end
end
```

Thank you! I got it now...It didn't pass because I declared the method twice.

Yeah it is easy to do things like that in Ruby. I have done that too. That and forgetting to put the right amount of ends in.

why does it need two Ends? I never saw that in any previous videos

You have two things to 'end' there. The first 'end' ends the if/else block, and the second one ends the loop itself.
