having trouble understanding where I went wrong here. Concerning using the correct arguments in the route or function

I'm having trouble understanding where I went wrong here. Concerning using the correct arguments in the route or function? A little help would be greatly appreciated.

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import request

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
def hello():
     return 'Hello Student'
@app.route('/<name>',)
def index(name=''):
    name = request.args.gets('name', name)

Hey Andrew, A couple of things. 1) Your index() doesn't return anything. What should it return? 2) The method is get(), not gets(). But you don't need to get 'name' from request since you've added a route that passes in <name>. (What is the trailing comma in there for?)
