This workshop is for practicing concepts from other courses. If you haven't already taken a course that teaches creating functions in Python, you might put this workshop aside for now and take the other course first.

Otherwise, you can use the "get hints" button to see an example of function definition syntax. There are some required components that don't appear here, including the main keyword for defining a function.
