Hi Dolapo

In your function you are printing the result of multiplying num and num2. The challenge wants you to return the result.

In your next line you are trying to return a value but you are not in the function so return is invalid and num1 and num2 are out of scope. If you wanted your return statement to be part of the function then you would need to have it indented to the same level as your print statement.
