Write your first_three_multiples function here:

def first_three_multiples(num):
return num*3

Uncomment these function calls to test your first_three_multiples function:


should print 10, 20, 30, and return 30


should print 0, 0, 0, and return 0

On the above code, I am not sure why the 5th line line, " return num*3 " is necessary, when you run the function, it returns, 10,20,30.
