Whats wrong with the format of the string in this method?

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

mod(25, 4)

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

mod(25, 4)

Hey Richard. Welcome to Treehouse.

You've almost got it.

First, the challenge is asking you to return the formatted sentence, but you are using puts. Just change that to return.

Second, there is a space after your opening quote in the (now return) statement.

Fix up those two things and you will be good to go!

Keep Coding! :)
