Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Objects Create a Class with a Method

Cant figure out how to complete code challenge

My code is attached, maybe 'open' is a reserved word?

class Store:
  open = 9;
  close = 10;

  def hours():
    return "We're open from {} to {}.".format(open, close);

Your problem is that you forgot to add the self keyword where it needs to be. You need the hours method to take it as a parameter, and then you need to prepend it to your references to open and close inside of the hours method. This worked for me:

class Store:
  open = 9
  close = 10

  # Notice the use of the self keyword in the below lines
  def hours(self):
    return "We're open from {} to {}.".format(self.open, self.close)

Also, on a side note, you should not use semicolons in Python, except when you're separating multiple commands on the same line, which you shouldn't really be doing. 99% of the time, you should give each statement its own line
