# HELP! stuck on number 3 on functions

#1

``Replace this line with your code.``

#3

``````def square(n):
"""Returns the square of a number."""
squared = n**2
print "%d squared is %d." % (n, squared)
return squared``````

#4

i broke it HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#5

you need to add a function call

#6

should be

``````squared = n ** 2
return squared``````

then you print after this.
also, print should be out of the function.

#7

not true, this is the default code provided by the exercise:

``````def square(n):
"""Returns the square of a number."""
squared = n**2
print "%d squared is %d." % (n, squared)
return squared

# Call the square function on line 9! Make sure to
# include the number 10 between the parentheses.``````

all you need to do is add a function call on line 9 (as mentioned in the comments)

so this:

is something you shouldn't do.

The last two lines of your reply are just confusing. And again, not what you have to do for the exercise
