I do not understand why my coding is wrong, I created the result ÷;variable but I am seeing a message saying create one

import math
def square(number):
    result = square

For those who may also come across this same problem. The way I fixed it is by removing the (indent) spaces in from of print and results, then I added (3) in front of the square; e.g. result = square (3) Best wishes! The accepted answer:
