With integer division also using int() is redundant. Other than that you are close:

def sillycase(silly):
    a = silly[:len(silly)//2]
    b = silly[len(silly)//2: ]
    return a.lower() + b.upper()  

Thanks a lot to Kris and Steven

Kris is right that the "int" is not needed, but it also doesn't cause any trouble. The only issue was forgetting to put "def" at the begnning of the function definition..

Other that that, it passes the challenge as-is! :+1:
