Printer function - error message

Hi, this is what I got as a function here - any suggestions:

def printer(num, "Hi ") return(num * "Hi") count = int num print(count*"Hi ")

def printer(num, "Hi ")
count = int num
print(count*"Hi ")

Hi Christian! You need to place the count in the brackets as the argument's method and just print that times by the string like so:

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

Hope that helps - let me know if you have any questions :)
