You're close, you just have an indentation error.

For the "return" to be considered part of the method, it needs to be indented one more step to line up with the assignment.

hey Steven,

I have a question. what does this

power = int. __new__(*args, **kwargs)

and what do you mean with 'it needs to be indented one more step to line up with the assignment.'

That line creates the new "int" instance, and if you look at the original code you can see the "return" line is indented as much as the "def" line, but that means it is not part of the method. It needs to be indented more (as much as the assignment statement above it) so that it is part of the method.

thanks so much. don"t know how it escaped my attention
