Hi Noor Hafiza Binti Ibrahim

You've pretty much got it correct. The only thing causing the Bummer! is the final return statement.
Here you just need to return the num value as it is. So, instead of return str(num), you just need to return num.

Extra note: Unless there is a very specific and purposeful reason, you should always return the value and type being entered. This is why you got the error. It was looking for an INT value of 32 but found a STR of 32.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:

why this code is not working ...

def fizzbuzz(num1):
    if num1 % 3 == 0 :
        return "Fizz"
    elif num1 % 5 == 0 :
        return "Buzz"
    elif num1 % 3 == 0 and num1 % 5 == 0:
        return "FizzBuzz"
    else:
        return num1

Uh oh, I didn't get the correct value returned. It should have been FizzBuzz. Instead, it was Fizz
