Can't find why it is not working.

Add a new property to the Rectangle class named area. It should calculate and return the area of the Rectangle instance (width * length).

I get Bummer: No area attribute error when I try to check my work. I do not understand what attribute do I need to give.

class Rectangle:

        return self.width * self.lenght
