Hi there,

You just need to create the method here; don't worry yourself about declaring variables outside of the method.

You want to `return True` if a number is even. To test for this, use the `mod` operator, the `%` symbol. An even number will give zero with `a_number % 2`. The `a_number` variable is passed into the method as a parameter; you don't need to declare it outside of the method.

So, that gives us an `if` clause:

```if a_number % 2 == 0:
return True
```

This is mutually exclusive, so the `else:` part writes itself; there can only be two outcomes:

```if a_number % 2 == 0:
return True
else:
return False
```

Now we just need to put that in a method that takes a parameter (and sort the indenting):

```def even_odd(a_number):
if a_number % 2 == 0:
return True
else:
return False
```

That should do it for you!

Steve.
