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

How do I print as many times?

Write a function named printer. The function should take a single argument, count, and should print "Hi " as many times as the count argument. Remember, you can multiply a string by an integer.

This is the question, but I don't get the part where it says, "as many times as the count argument."

printer.py
def printer(count):
    if printer == 'count':
        print("Hi")

Your if statement isn't needed, even if it was you put "" around count making it a string, not a variable name. Anyway the answer is as simple as print('Hi' * count), if count is 3 that will print HiHiHi
