def squared(num): num = input("enter the values: ") try : total=num*num return total except ValueError: return len(num)
# EXAMPLES def squared(num): num = input("enter the values: ") try : total=num*num return total except ValueError: return len(num) # squared(5) would return 25 # squared("2") would return 4 # squared("tim") would return "timtimtim"

Here's a few hints:
- the value is passed in as the argument, you won't need an "input" statement
- the code in the "try" block should include an explicit conversion to a number
- if the conversion fails, the return should be the length multiplied by the argument itself
can you help me with code am stuck
