Write a function, named multiply, that takes a value as an argument, then returns that value multiplied by 2.

What have you tried so far?

Take a look at the Sass documentation found here: http://sass-lang.com/documentation/file.SASS_REFERENCE.html#function_directives

Every sass function starts with @function, than the function name, and any variables to pass into the function inside parentheses. Inside the curly braces we have to @return something. In this case it's whatever the value we passed in as a variable * 2.

The example function on the Sass docs I linked above shows you exactly the syntax you need. Try plugging in the rest of the specifics of the questions into the syntax and see if you can't get it right.

Let me know how it goes.

my code: lol

@function (multiply)

That's a start. I expanded above. Let me know if that helps you solve it for yourself.

my code: whats wrong with it?

@function multiply ($input) { $return $input * 2; }

Functions use @return instead of $return
