Bug: didn't get a 200 at multiply/10/10

I think 10 * 10 should be 100

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/multiply')
@app.route('/multiply/<num1>/<num2>')
def multiply(num1=5, num2=5):
    return str(num1 * num2)

Hi there! I feel fairly sure that what is meant by the 200 refers to the 200 HTTP status meaning that everything is ok, not the result of the multiplication. Remember, that you have to say what data type those variables are. So, for example, where you have <num1>, you should have <int:num1>. This is referenced at around 0:27 of the video.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
