It's as simple as:

string = 'Hi ' * 5

The 5 would be replaced by the argument count inside a function

First, let me say "Welcome to Treehouse!"

Typically when you want to ask a code related question in the forum it helps if you post the code you are using, even if it doesn't work, so that others can see how you are attempting to solve the issue.

To your question though, in Python you can multiply strings and integers by doing string_value * integer_value and that will return the string_value, integer_value times. For example:

def print_hi(count):
  print("Hi " * count)


Would yield: Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi

Post back if you still have questions.

Happy coding,

Brendan's code passes - the code from the other people who answered does not.
