Tried this in a different IDE and it worked fine.
what am i missing?
# EXAMPLES # squared(5) would return 25 # squared("2") would return 4 # squared("tim") would return "timtimtim" def squared(x): try: int(x)**2 except ValueError: return x*len(x)

in your try block you want to int cast x and return the square if successful. the except block is fine, you're just missing the return in the try, which will be hit if the cast is successful.
