Create a Function, Task 1

Hi.

I'm using math.pow(base_number, power) which I found in the Python documentation but this isn't passing.

"Return x raised to the power y. Exceptional cases follow Annex ‘F’ of the C99 standard as far as possible. In particular, pow(1.0, x) and pow(x, 0.0) always return 1.0, even when x is a zero or a NaN. If both x and y are finite, x is negative, and y is not an integer then pow(x, y) is undefined, and raises ValueError.

Unlike the built-in ** operator, math.pow() converts both its arguments to type float. Use ** or the built-in pow() function for computing exact integer powers."

Thanks in advance for any help.

squaring.py
def square(number):
    return math.pow(number, 2)

Forget this.

I found something that worked. Why math.pow() didn't work, I don't know.

Sorry for the bother.
