# In the body of my function, how do I return a squared number?

def square (number): return number * 2....?????

squaring.py
```def square (number):
return number * 2 !=
```

Hi!, your really close, the right code is this:

```def square(number):
return number*number
```

like u see first, i created a function named square and pass a paramater named number. to return a squared number *** YOU NEED TO MULTIPLY THE NUMBER BY HIM SELF*** and not by 2, and because of that u need to retun number*number.
