You are so close! A function needs to return a value. A print will show up on the console but is not seen by the challenge checker.

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

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:

import math def square(number): return(number**2) result = square(3) print(result)
