stuck on create a function challenge 2 of 2

Great now that you have created your new square method, let's put it to use.

Under the function definition, call your new function and pass it the argument 3.

Since your square function returns a value, create a new variable named result to store the value from the function call.

def square(number):
    return (number * number)

result= square * 3

1 Answer

Maybe it's easier than you think. Just call the function and store the result.

def square(number):
    return (number * number)

result = square(3)
