Hi Dominic,

You're on the right track, just a matter of proper formatting and a few other things.

First, put everything between the two statements the challenge gave you. In other words, the return comes at the end. Also indent everything properly. The test line is not needed. And the last things I see are that your if statement is not on one line and you have >= (which is greater than or equal to), you need < (less than).

Hope this helps!
