I Am Having Trouble on Code Challenge: Double Task 3 of 3
I am having trouble figuring out whether it should be self or int that I multiply by 2. Also, I'm not sure where to put the two separate lines of code - inside the function, or in the class. Please help!
def __new__(*args, **kwargs):
self = int.__new__(*args, **kwargs)
doubled_value = self * 2

It looks like you want to put the code for the *double * inside of the new method. If you put it outside of this method the code will not be ran and thus will not return self * 2 when created.
self is an int so take self and multiply by 2, then return self.
also keep in mind that you cannot return code after a return has already been made. so you cannot use double return statements.
