Challenge 2

Question

Add a new route to multiply() that has two arguments. Add the same two arguments to the multiply() view. They should have defaults of 5.

I'm not sure what is the BUG in this code

ERROR MESSAGE

Bummer: Didn't get a 200 at /multiply

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/multiply')
@app.route('/multiplication/<num1>/<num2>')
def multiply(num1 = 5, num2 = 5):
    return "{}".format(num1*num2)

Hi Otec! I don't know if this will resolve the issue, but I do spy a typo. (.fomat instead of .format)

Your route should be multiply instead of multiplication. I was able to get past task 2 with the following:

@app.route('/multiply')
@app.route('/multiply/<num1>/<num2>')
def multiply(num1 = 5, num2 = 5):
    return "{}".format(5*5)

why does this work with .format(5*5) but not .format(num1*num2)?

.format(num1*num2) does work I believe the user has to create a completely new route for this challenge to work
