Add a new property to the Rectangle class named area. It should calculate and return the area of the Rectangle instance (width * length).

i dont know what's wrong with the code

rectangle.py
class Rectangle:
    def __init__(self, width, length):
        self.width = width
        self.length = length

    @property
    def area(self):
        return self.width*self.length

I don't see anything wrong with this code. So I pasted it directly into the challenge, and it passed task 1!

Try again?
