what is wrong with this
def square(number): return (number*number) result = square(number) print (result)

If you run the code you'll see
NameError: name 'number' is not defined
your function is perfectly fine but to call it you need to actually pass it a number
def square(number): return (number*number) result = square(4) print (result) >> out: 16
