Why am I not getting Ruby rocks when concatenating this string.

Working on Challenge Task 1 of 1

def Ruby (rocks)
  puts "Ruby" + "rocks"

puts "Ruby" + rocks"

You don't need a function. The challenge just asks you to join "Ruby" and "rocks!" with a space in between and print the result. Your last line is close but you are missing the space, a quote, and an exclamation point.

puts "Ruby" + " rocks!"
