Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Print "hi"

Hey guys i need help, im stuck here. functions

still getting it wrong, the code is supposed to print "Hi " as many times as the count argument.

printer.py
def printer(count):
count = "Hi " * 10
    print(count)
def printer(count):
    print("Hi " * count)
    return

You need to multiply "Hi " by count. Since count is the argument received, you don't need to declare it as a variable. When the function is called it will essentially replace count with the number provided as the argument.

#When you call the function with this argument, this will print "Hi " 4 times
printer(4)

#When you call the function with this argument, this will print "Hi " 10 times
printer(10)

Also don't forget the indentation when defining your function.

thanks man, it's game on!
