Not sure what the issue with my code is, it seems correct but isn't passing.

Not sure why it is not working.

printer.py
def printer(int(count)):
    for count >= 0:
        print("Hi")
    count -= 1

printer(5)

A for loop does not work in this way, if you wanted that code to run you would need to replace for with while. That code would print out Hi 5 times on 5 separate lines.

However, the challenge wants you to print all the His in a row. So the code is very simple:

def printer(count):
    print('Hi' * count)

This will print HiHiHiHiHi
