I Am Having Trouble on Code Challenge: Capitalism, the game: Task 2 of 3

In the doubles function, I am trying to see if the numbers in the list 'dice' are equal to the 'value' parameter mentioned in the Hand class. Then I try to return True or False based on the output, but I keep getting the error: Bummer: Try again! Could someone help me?

hands.py
from dice import D6


class Hand(list):
    def __init__(self, size=0, die_class=None, *args, **kwargs):
        if not die_class:
            raise ValueError("You must provide a die class")
        super().__init__()

        for _ in range(size):
            self.append(die_class())
        self.sort()

    def _by_value(self, value):
        dice = []
        for die in self:
            if die == value:
                dice.append(die)
        return dice


class CapitalismHand(Hand):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__(size=2, die_class=D6)

    @property
    def ones(self):
        return self._by_value(1)

    @property
    def twos(self):
        return self._by_value(2)

    @property
    def threes(self):
        return self._by_value(3)

    @property
    def fours(self):
        return self._by_value(4)

    @property
    def fives(self):
        return self._by_value(5)

    @property
    def sixes(self):
        return self._by_value(6)

    @property
    def _sets(self):
        return {
            1: len(self.ones),
            2: len(self.twos),
            3: len(self.threes),
            4: len(self.fours),
            5: len(self.fives),
            6: len(self.sixes)
        }

    @property
    def doubles(self):
        if dice == value:
            return True
        else:
            return False

It looks like you already resolved your other question, you might want to delete that one.

For this one, neither "dice" nor "value" have been defined. But remember that the underlying class is a list, so you can use indexing to access the individual dice. For example, the first one would be "self[0]".

Also, you don't need to test a boolean value to return "true" or "false", you can directly return the result of the comparison.
