I ran the code in my own linux box. It worked.
def three(a) a=3 return a end def five(b) b=5 return b end

You have a couple of issues here.
First, the instructions need to be followed exactly as they are stated. Here the instructions does not say anything about a parameter for the method, so the parenthesis should be empty ==>
def method_name() Note: you could eliminate the parenthesis all together, but I like them there, so the "no parameters" is clear to anyone reading the code.
Second, the instructions do not say to assign a value to any variable, so the method should just return the hard-coded value it asks for. This can be done with the
return method, or in Ruby, the last line of a method will automatically be returned, so you don't even need the
return for this method.
The correct method would look like this:
def three() # No parameters are asked for, so the () should be empty 3 # This is the last line of the method, so the value will be an implicit return end
Keep Coding! :)
