IDK what to do

A better description of how to use new would be great

doubler.py
class Double(int):

    def __new__(*args, **kwargs):
        self = int.__new__(*args,**kwargs*)
        return self

You did it right, but you have a typo (a stray asterisk) causing a syntax error:

        self = int.__new__(*args,**kwargs*)
#                                        ^
#                                        remove that stray asterisk
