Trying to pass a variable as a function argument that is inputted by the user. Getting some weird errors. Any help will be appreciated.

Error that I’m getting:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File “python”, line 14, in

File “python”, line 6, in square

TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for ** or pow(): ‘unicode’ and ‘int’

def square(original):

“”“Returns the square of a number.”""

original = raw_input(‘Enter a number to be squared:’)

squared = original**2

print “%d squared is %d.” % (n, squared)

return squared

#Call the function

square(original)

`<do not remove the three backticks above>`
