You have the correct idea! There is unnecessary code that is causing the failure.

:point_right: The return statement is not properly indented inside of the function.

:point_right: Do not assign values to the parameters. This overwrites the values passed in by the challenge checker causing the value 200 to always be returned. Delete these two lines.

:point_right: The line before the return does nothing but compute a value then toss it way. Delete this line.

This should get it passing. Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
