print "Hi " as many times as count

somebody please explain the next step

printer.py
def printer(count):

1 Answer

The challenge wants you to print the message "Hi " as many time as times says.

Keep in mind that there shouldn't be newlines/carriage returns at the end of each "Hi"!

Examples of calling the function:

>>> printer(3)
Hi Hi Hi 
>>> printer(1)
Hi 
>>> printer(5)
Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi 

Here's a hint to solve this: You can use the multiplication operator to repeat a string multiple times.

Examples:

>>> "a" * 3
"aaa"
>>> "Hi " * 10
"Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi "

I hope this helps :grin:
