Ruby Ruby Basics (Retired) Ruby Methods Method Returns: Part 2

What is the answer to the challenge task for Method Returns: Part 2? I'm not sure what do with the variable "c".

I've tried following the previous example in the "Method Returns" video but not really connecting the dots since the method only includes the two arguments. What do you do with "c"?

method.rb
def mod(a, b)
  puts "The remainder of #{a} divded by #{b} is c."
  return a % b
end

The challenge is asking you to return the string as opposed to the value.

def mod(a, b)
  c =  a % b
  return "The remainder of #{a} divided by #{b} is #{c}."
end
