Why wont it work ?

On idle , it comes out as hi hi hi hi hi 5 times because my count is 5 , but is that wrong ?

def printer(count):
    print("Hi " * 5)

Hey Satish,

You're really close! Within your print statement, it should be "Hi " * count. As your code is written now, your function takes an argument and doesn't do anything with it. It will always print 'Hi' five times.
