This code works, but I was wondering if there was another way to do it.

There were two ways to complete Task 2. There were hardly any differences between them. But I'm interested to know if there are multiple ways to complete Task 3. If you have another way could you let me know? Thank you. :)

doubler.py
class Double(int):
    def __new__(*args, **kwargs):
        output = int.__new__(*args, **kwargs)
        final_output = output * 2
        return final_output

You can do it without creating the temporary variables:

class Double(int):
    def __new__(*args, **kwargs):
        return int.__new__(*args, **kwargs) * 2
