squaring_please_help

I know this is probably wildly wrong what I have written... I got back 'result not defined'. Please help...

squaring.py
def square(number):
    return (number * number)
    number = int(input(3))
    result = (3 * 3)

print(result)

Hello! you are very close! you need to return number * number. in the end u call the function with the argument 3 inside it and store the outcome in a variable called result
