Hi,

you need to literally multiply "Hi" * count:

printer.py
def printer(count):
    print("Hi" * count) #remove the space after "Hi"

printer(count) # you don't need to call the function

can you multiply an argument with string?? or is count considered an integer?

thanks for the answer by the way!!!

You can't multiply an argument by string, in this case count is considered an integer.

Glad that I help you! :tada:
