help with syntax

Write a function, called double, that multiplies its input by 2.

@function double($input) {
    @return ($input * 2);
'''
I thought I understood the module... but objective has proven me wrong.  Help greatly appreciated.

When I preview with:

@function double($input) {
    @return ($input * 2);
}

It works just fine. is that incorrect syntax or is the quiz just being extra picky?
