# Python

I don't get understand, please give me the suggesstion

squared.py
```# EXAMPLES
# squared(5) would return 25
# squared("2") would return 4
# squared("tim") would return "timtimtim"

try:
squared("tim")
except ValueError:
print("This is not the correct one")

def squared(number):
return number * number
```

You need to make sure all your code is inside the function for this challenge.

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

def squared(arg):
try:
arg = int(arg) # verifies arg is a number
except ValueError:
return arg * len(arg) # If arg is a string then it returns sting times the length of the string
else:
return arg ** 2 # else returns string squared
```
