Bummer: Uh oh, I didn't get the correct value returned. It should have been 59. Instead, it was 0.84375
How do i get the correct value?
# enter your code below def mathy(divide,b,c): divide = b/c return divide

That was unexpected, you might try rethinking your approach somewhat. The first variable is an operation that comes in as a string. The other variables are numeric.
So you would write something like this:
def mathy(operation, x, y): if operation == 'divide': answer = x / y if operation == 'multiply': answer = x * y # YOUR CODE FOR ADD # YOUR CODE FOR SUBTRACT return answer
