Not sure what's wrong with this code!


# squared(5) would return 25
# squared("2") would return 4
# squared("tim") would return "timtimtim"

def squared(answer):
        answer = int(input("What number do you want me to square? "))
    except ValueError:
        return("{} is not a number!")

def squared(a):
        a = int(a)
        return a ** 2
        return len(a) * a
