Why is my code not working

Why is my code not working? it ask me to

"Write a method inside the Frog class named EatFly. It should take a single integer parameter named distanceToFly and return a bool value. It should return true if the frog can reach the fly with its tongue, and false otherwise."

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
    class Frog
        public readonly int TongueLength;

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
            TongueLength = tongueLength;

        public bool EatFly(bool distanceToFly)
            bool canEat = distanceToFly <= tongueLength;

There are three issues in your code:

  1. You define the distanceToFly parameter as a bool, which it is not. It is an int.

  2. The name of the tongue length variable is TongueLength not tongueLength, the latter version is just a parameter used in the class constructor.

  3. You are missing a return statement in your method.

If you fix those issues then your code will work.
