How is this not the answer????? It doesn't go through..

This is somehow not passing..

class Rectangle:
    def __init__(self, width, length):
        self.width = width
        self.length = length

    def area(self):
        return self.width * self.length

Might not be the issue but I noticed in some of my challenges that if you are using the tab button instead of spaces it sometimes spits out errors. I had a few challenges where it worked flawlessly in a terminal, but wouldn't go through in the code challenge window.

Go back and try redoing your spaces, it might solve your problem. or not, who knows.

Yeah I think that might be why. I pasted it in PEP8 online tool to see and fixed it with that and it went through. Thanks!
