Method syntax producing error

I am learning Ruby using codecademy and the current exercise tells the user to :

Define two methods in the editor:

A greeter method that takes a single string parameter, name, and returns a string greeting that person. (Make sure to use return and don't use print or puts.)

A by_three? method that takes a single integer parameter, number, and returns true if that number is evenly divisible by three and false if not. Remember, it's a Ruby best practice to end method names that produce boolean values with a question mark.

Based on that I came up with some code but it doesn't work and I do not know how to fix it or what I am missing. Any push in the right direction is greatly appreciated! Here is my code :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. def greeter (name)
  3. name = gets.chomp
  4. return "Hi there #{name} sucka!"
  5. end
  7. def by_three(number)
  9. number = gets.chomp
  10. if number % 3 == 0
  11. return true
  12. else return false
  13. end
