I came across a quiz question in the Python 3: (Functions) practice module exam.

**The question is:** Write a function called `adding_squares`

that takes two inputs, `x`

and `y`

and returns the sum of the squares of each of those numbers. For example, if `adding_squares(2, 3)`

is called, it should return the sum of `4`

and `9`

, which is `13`

.

My code produces the results (I believe ) the question is calling for:

```
def adding_squares(x, y):
x = (x**2)
y = (y**2)
print(f"{x} + {y} = {x + y}")
adding_squares(2, 3)
```

However, when I submit to Check Answer I get this response:

*Expected adding_squares(0,0) to equal 0 , but instead got None*

I then changed the arguments to (0,0), and got the same response. Can you let me know what I’m doing wrong? Thanks!

However, I do not think it will take you to the exact question I’m referencing.
