I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, :( please help!

I can only imagine I’m not understanding the question or I’ve missed something

product.py
def product(4, 5):
    print(4*5);
    return

Your code should look something like this:

def product(arg1, arg2):
    return arg1 * arg2

You don't want to hardcode your arguments in the function header, and you also don't want to print the product of the arguments. Instead, you want to simply multiply them and return them in the same line.
