I really need some help

Now I need you to write a function named absolute that takes two arguments, a path string and a root string. If the path is not already absolute, return the path with the root prepended to it.

For example: absolute("projects/python_basics/", "/") would return "/projects/python_basics/" while absolute("/home/kenneth/django", "C:\") would return "/home/kenneth/django".

import os
def absolute(path_string, root_string):
    path_string = 'projects/python_basics/'
    root_string = '", "/'
    return /projects/python_basics/

I am not python expert so I googled it for you. By the way, if you want to get quick answers with some good explanations, copy the challenge text and google it. There are people who have asked and already solved it.
