why it's a bummer?


class Rectangle:
    def __init__(self, width, length):
        self.width = width
        self.length = length

    def area(self):
        return self.width * self*length

You just have a little typo. You wrote "self*length" (with an asterisk) instead of "self.length" (with a period).
