Bummer: Uh oh, I didn't get the correct value returned. It should have been 59. Instead, it was 18
#Create a function called "mathy" # that calls a string and two numbers def mathy(str, num1, num2): #Add two numbers and return the sum return num1 + num2

Hey Trenton Spears, the challenge will call your function with
string equal to the one of the four operator names. You will need to check the value of
string to decide the math operator to use. An
if/elif/else statement works well here.
str is a built-in object type. Using
str as a variable name should be avoided if possible.
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
