what does this mean? AssertionError: (<function square at 0x7f7e5ebbfea0>, 9) != 9

My code seems to out put the right info def square(number): return(number*number) number = (square(3)) result = (square, number) print(result) but I got this AssertionError and i don't know what it wants.

If I'm thinking of the right challenge, it asks you to put the result of calling the function into the variable result. But the code result = (square, number) is loading that variable with a tuple, which is likely confusing the checking system.

For future questions, it's helpful to identify what course and lesson you are referring to. You might want to take a look at this video about Posting a Question. And when posting code, always use Markdown formatting to preserve the code's appearance.
