I don't understand. Please help.
I tried but cannot resolve this problem.
def square(number): square_of_the_value_passed_in = "number" return square_of_the_value_passed_in
Here's one way to tackle the challenge...
- First, you need to define the function. You've already did that correctly
- Then, you need to square the number passed in and save it in a variable. To square a variable, you simply multiply it by itself, e.g.
number * number
- Return the variable

You defined the function properly but there is no need for your second line of code. Just think of how to square a number (just multiply it by itself) and then return that.
Remember, you're squaring the parameter (number) so you will just be returning (number * number) in this exercise
