I think you are a little over-thinking this...

First, you are making these arguments num1 and num2 but the challenge didn't ask you to make those yet. All you need to return is literally 5 * 5.

Second, in the route, you misspelled "mutlipy". The correct way to spell it is "multiply". Notice the first one is like "mut-lipy" and the correct form is "mul-ti-ply".

Correct code:

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/multiply')
def multiply():
    return str(5 * 5)

I hope this helps :grin:
