Ruby Ruby Basics (Retired) Ruby Methods Method Arguments: Part 1

What does this statement mean "Create a method called hello that takes one argument."

I don't understand what the question is asking for.

def hello 


1 Answer

You need to be able to take in an argument. Your function currently takes no arguments. You can call the argument whatever you want, but I'm calling it arg in this example.

def hello(arg)


I hope this helps. ~Alex
