Challenge issue: return number of queryset objects using len(queryset) [Solved]

To pass a challenge, I need to return a HttpResponse object with a string containing the number of articles in the queryset. The instruction says to use len() function. I just get Bummer: Didn't get the right output.

articles/views.py
from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article

# Write your views here
def article_list():
    articles = Article.objects.all()
    return HttpResponse("There are {} articles.".format(len(articles)))

I'll answer myself: The request object has to passed to the view function.

from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article

# Write your views here
def article_list(request):
    articles = Article.objects.all()
    return HttpResponse("There are {} articles.".format(len(articles)))
