Here's a few hints:

  • you won't need a conditional
  • you must always have the string "Hi "
  • after you "multiply" the string, don't try to convert it into an integer

You're really close!

At the moment, you've done a lot more than you need to.

You have the first line correct and second line can be deleted since it's not needed.

For the third line, there is no need to covert it into a int, and you accidently turned count into a string.

If you still can't solve it, just reply to this and I'll show you how I solved it.

Hope this helps!
