Here's a few hints:

  • don't change the provided code (like changing "starter" to "tarter")
  • you should probably add new code after the provided code
  • nothing named "r" has been defined
  • to avoid confusion and possible errors, don't give variables the same names as functions or packages
  • the function parameter "num" isn't being used inside the function (but should be)
  • you will also want to use "starter" inside the function
  • your function should compute a time that is "num" hours later than "starter"
  • the timedelta function might be useful here
