This is the what it's telling me to do.

Write a function named printer. The function should take a single argument, count, and should print "Hi " as many times as the count argument. Remember, you can multiply a string by an integer.

def printer(count):
    print(count * 3)

The argument "count" shouldn't be telling the function what to print, rather, how many times to print "Hi ".

    print ("Hi " * count)

Hi Hi Hi Hi

Also, you don't need to call the function, the challenge will call it itself. :)
