Stuck on "Raising an exception" task!

I keep getting either "product_idea is not defined" or " return outside function" errors. Please help.

Your return statement should line up with your if statement

def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_idea) <= 3 :
        raise ValueError ("Idea needs to be longer!")
    return product_idea + "inator"
