Solution Check Advice

hi fellow learners I want to know does my solution approach is correct? Challenge gets passed.

twoples.py
def multiply(*args):
    multi=1
    for i in args:
        multi=multi*i
    return (multi)


call=multiply(2,3)
print("multiplication of the numbers : {}".format(call))

1 Answer

You have the right idea. A couple of small things: no need to put () around multi. It's a number so you just need to return it. And I would call the variable something more accurate and clear, like product, instead of multi. Remember that coding is a form of communication -- make it easier for others to read and understand your code by using good variable names. This is important when you're working with others.
