Challenge Task 2 of 2. Help me

Now, create a view named article_list that selects all Article instances and returns an HttpResponse like "There are 5 articles." Be sure to use the len() of the Article queryset to get the number of articles.

articles/views.py
from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article
# Write your views here
def article_list(request):
    articles = Article.objects.all()

You have the Article queryset in "articles", so the last part of the task is to return the HttpResponse with the message. The hint even tells you "to use the len() of the Article queryset":

    return HttpResponse(f"There are {len(articles)} articles.")

thank you steve it worked
