Python Functions, Packing, and Unpacking Getting Info In and Out of Functions Functions with Arguments and Returns

AssertionError: None != 'Hello Ashley'

Still getting an error even though the output seems to be correct.

"Bummer: AssertionError: None != 'Hello Ashley' : Whoops, it looks like the string returned from your function is incorrect. Double check spelling and make sure there is a space between words in the returned string."

creating_functions.py
def hello_student(name):
    print('Hello {}'.format(name))

hello_student('Ashley')

Hey Eric Agana, remember to return an object from the function. Not print.

If no return statement present, then it is assumed to be return None. Which is the None value in the assertion.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Thanks Chris Freeman . It worked after carefully reading the requirement many times. I am required only to return "one value".
