Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Product

Python Basics - Challenge task 1 of 1 I can't get it to work

Challenge Task 1 of 1 I need you to write a function named product. It should take two arguments, you can call them whatever you want, and then multiply them together and return the result.

My suggestion:

def product(num1, num2): result = num1*num2

product(2, 5)


1 Answer

You need to use the keyword return in the body of your function in order to complete the exercise.

def product(num1, num2):
    return num1 * num2

Ted, thank you so much.
