Python Python Basics (Retired) Putting the "Fun" Back in "Function" Functions

Stuck on Python Function task 1

trying to figure this out without asking for answer but it seems like my only option. here is my code

# add_list([1, 2, 3]) should return 6
# summarize([1, 2, 3]) should return "The sum of [1, 2, 3] is 6."
# Note: both functions will only take *one* argument each.

def add_list(list_of_numbers):
  counter = 0
  for item in list_of_numbers:
    counter = counter + item
return counter

Your logic is correct you just need to move your return statement into the function block by indenting it in two spaces.
