I don't understand why this is wrong

Let's play with the *args pattern. Create a function named multiply that takes any number of arguments. Return the product (multiplied value) of all of the supplied arguments. The type of argument shouldn't matter. Slices might come in handy for this one.

def multiply(*args):
    product = 1
    for arg in args:
        product *= arg
    return product

You code looks good to me! So I tested it by pasting it directly into the challenge and it passed!

One thing that won't show up here is if you've mixed tabs and spaces (Markdown converts it all to spaces). But Python wouldn't like it. See if maybe that's the issue.
