CSS Sass Basics (retired) Speeding up Workflow with Sass Sass Functions

Use the double function you just wrote to refactor this code: div { font-size: 5px * 2; }

Did a little searching and I am coming up short. The red tip says to call my new double function, which i did, and then to assign the result to my div tag which it should be doing. Can anyone help please, and thank you

/* Write your SCSS code below. */
@function double ($input){
 @return $input * 2;
}

div {
double(5px);
}

@function double($input) {
    @return $input * 2;
}

div { 
  font-size: unquote(double(5) + "px"); 
}

Adam Moore How did you get that amount of points with that kind of mistake...

/* Write your SCSS code below. */ @function double ($input){ @return $input * 2; }

div { font-size: double(5px); }

You don't need to add @include when you call double(5px);

div { font-size: double(5) + unquote("px"); }

I am smacking my head lol how did i miss that....thanks Adam

div { font-size: double(5) + unquote("px"); }

This worked for me.

```/* Write your SCSS code below. */ @function double($input) { @return $input * 2; }

$lol: double(5px);

div { font-size: $lol; }```

div{ font-size: double(5px); }

Hi guys I found this solution it worked out perfectly:

@function double ($input){ @return $input * 2; }

div { font-size: unquote(double(5) + "px"); }

To call the function inside your div you need to @include

So @include double(5px);

well i thought it would work....no dice

/* Write your SCSS code below. */
@function double ($input){
 @return $input * 2;
}


div {
@include double(5px);
}

output this Bummer! Call your new 'double' function with an argument of 5px. Use the result to set the font-size attribute of 'div' tags.
