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

Start by implementing the suggestions, and then show the code you have at that point if you're still having trouble.
