Python Functions, Packing, and Unpacking Getting Info In and Out of Functions Functions with Arguments and Returns


where am I getting it wrong?

def hello_student(name):
    name = 'Ashley'
    return ('Hello', name)

You are returning the tuple ('Hello', 'Ashley') regardless of what is passed in. Use regular string concatenation instead (perhaps you were thinking of the print function) and don't reassign a value to name

thank you for the hint it helped a lot

def hello_student(): return ("Hello Ashley")

You still need the name parameter.

def hello_student(name):
    return "Hello " + name
