For challenge 5 I have been asked to create a function called stats which crates a list of lists each containing the teachers and the number of courses they teach, my function seems to work in workspaces doing exactly as asked but in the challenge I get the message "could not find 'stats'" Have I made a stupid error here? Thank you in advance for any help

# The dictionary will look something like:
# {'Andrew Chalkley': ['jQuery Basics', 'Node.js Basics'],
#  'Kenneth Love': ['Python Basics', 'Python Collections']}
# Each key will be a Teacher and the value will be a list of courses.
# Your code goes below here.
def num_teachers(arg):

def num_courses(arg):
    x = 0
    for course in arg:
        x += len(arg[course])

def courses(arg):
    list_ = []
    for value in arg.values():
        list_ += value

def most_courses(arg):
    list_nums = []
    list_keys = []

    for key in arg:


def stats(arg):
    stats_list = []

    for key in dict_:

Hiya Adam! You literally are very very close. Just replace "dict_" with "arg", and you are good to go. (:
