# What's the problem with my code?

Again, I cannot get it.

slices.py
```def first_4(iterable):
return iterable[:4]

def first_and_last_4(iterable2):
return iterable2[:4] and iterable2[-4:]
```
```def first_and_last_4(iterable2):
return iterable2[:4] and iterable2[-4:]
```

Remember how to join two lists together?

def first_4(iterable): return iterable[:4]

def first_and_last_4(iterable2) list1 = iterable2[:4] list2 = iterable2[-4:] newlist = list1 + list2 return newlist```

I have tried this but still not working

```def first_and_last_4(iterable2):
list1 = iterable2[:4]
list2 = iterable2[-4:]
newlist = list1 + list2
return newlist
```

You're just missing the colon at the end of the first line, otherwise it works fine :)
