The instructions say "call your new function and pass it the argument 3." and "create a new variable named result to store the value from the function call."

What they mean by passing the argument is to put that value between the parentheses directly in the code when you call the function. You won't need to use "input".

And instead of "result", this code is storing the returned value in "a".

Fix those issues and you should pass the challenge. And you also won't need to "print" anything.
