Python Using Databases in Python Gettin' CRUD-y With It CRUD: Create Function

Not sure what I'm doing wrong

Error: "Bummer! Didn't find the challenge I asked you to create."

I don't know what it means by creating a challenge, or how to go about doing it. I feel like there should be docs I can reference while I problem solve.

from models import Challenges

def create_challenge(name, language, steps=1):
    Challenge(name, language, steps)

Yeah, this one was tricky for me too. Consider the below.

from models import Challenge

def create_challenge(name, language, steps=1):
    Challenge.create(name=name, language=language, steps=steps)

What we are doing here is using the imported Challenge class to create a Challenge object passing the classes method the arguments that our create_challenge function is called with.
