WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS!

IT KEEPS SAYING I NEED TO FORMAT A NICE STRING.

method.rb
#write your code here
def mod(a, b)
  puts "The remainder of a divided by b is c."
  return a % b
end

puts mod(20, 5)

what is wrong is you are not doing what the challenge asks. it doesn't say print anything, it says return the statement using string interpolation. so don't literally put a, b and c, but interpolate the correct values in the requested string.
