Python Python Basics (2015) Number Game App Squared

When I run the program in workshop, it works. Why is it not working in the squared.py file in the challenge?

See Above.

# squared(5) would return 25
# squared("2") would return 4
# squared("tim") would return "timtimtim"
def squared(argument):
            print (int(argument) ** 2)
        except ValueError:
            print (argument * len(argument))

Hey Andrew! The code looks correct so I can only assume your mistake is that you are printing out the answers when you should actually be using return instead!

Hope this helps and happy coding :)
