When the challenge asks to create a function, you don't have to create the variables to call it. The challenge checker will take car of that.

So you are on the right path:

# Write function named product. 
# It should take two arguments,
#  you can call them whatever you want....
def product(hahaha, hehehe):
    #  and then multiply them together
    result = hahaha * hehehe
    # and return the result.
    return result

Edit: Oops! Multiplication (*) not Addition (+).

Hi there. Your function needs to take in 2 arguments and multiply them together using the multiplication operator which is an asterisc:

def product(a, b):
  return a*b
