A good effort!

The answer you're looking for is:

def square(number):
    return (number * number)

result = square(3)
print (result)

As it wanted you to use the function you'd created previously instead of create another one on top of it. It also wanted you to assign this method call to a variable called 'result'.

To call a method in python you simply write the method name, and pass it any arguments to the parameters ei:

methodName(param1,param2)

Thank you, it worked
