Raise an exception question

I'm not sure what I'm missing - it says that I have two mistakes, but I can't figure it out:(

suggestinator.py
def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_idea) < 3:
        raise ValueError("At least 3 characters required.")
return product_idea + "inator"

Hi Amelie,

Your return statement needs to be inside the function, so just indent it. Hope this helps.
