The feedback I'm getting is that the program doesn't meet the conditions. From what I can see, it does. ???

I'm supposed to have the program check to see if the car speed is greater than or equal to 40 and less than or equal to 50. If those two conditions are met, it prints "safe"; otherwise, it prints "unsafe"

I've passed it different numbers (including 39, 45, 50, 51) and it has produced the expected answers.

Am I missing something?

def check_speed(car_speed)
  if (car_speed >= 40) && (car_speed <= 50)
    print "safe"
    print "unsafe"

Hi Kaitlyn! The challenge asks you to "return" safe or unsafe and you are using "print". The treehouse challenges are sticklers for usage. If you change "print" to "return", you will pas the challenge. I hope this helps!

Wow, thanks! That did help.
