The instructions were:

return a single subtraction calculation using `a` and `b` that will correctly sort the numbers with the above logic.

But you wrote an if statement.

Drop the if statement and write:

return

Then write a subtraction statement next to it.

oh thanks it worked ! I assumed I had to write an if statement but turns out it wasn’t even necessary
