Python Flask Basics Welcome to Flask Multiply View

Flask 5 * 5 question

So I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Can you not use default parameters in Flask? I tried putting the numbers directly into the route path but that didn't work either. TIA

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

def multiply(num1=5, num2=5):
    return str(num1 * num2)
    #return '{} * {} = {}'.format(num1, num2, num1 * num2)

You need to retain the route for multiply as well as with input.
