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

how do i print multiple statements in a function

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.

printer.py
def printer(count)
    print("hie")

def printer(count):
   counter = len(count) # Get the length of the string argument you put in. Will return an integer.
   return 'hi' * counter # Multiply 'hi' by the size of the argument. You can choose to use the print function instead of return.
