Hi Felix,

You've got the right idea. If this is for the challenge, you only require the function that you have already written (take out importing math, take out value=input(), and take out your print statement). All of that could have been used in another scenario but not for the challenge. Your answer should be three lines. Also, you want to pass value into your function not number. Number is what you're returning. I hope this helps you!
