The instructions tell you to "Under the function definition, call your new function and pass it the argument 3."

The syntax for calling a function is to write the function name followed by a pair of parentheses, and put any argument(s) being passed inside the parentheses. Try that instead of "repeat square" (which isn't Python syntax as far as I know).

You also won't need to "print" anything.

thanks men.
