There's a few issues here:

  • line 1 contains a complete function definition, so lines 2 and 3 are redundant
  • line 2 also references "Value" (capital "V"), which is not defined
  • the instructions don't ask you to call the function, so the bottom line is superfluous
  • if you did need to call the function, you'd use parentheses () instead of braces {}
