Your code is technically correct, but it isn't what Codecademy expects and isn't the best it can be.

You called timesTwo() on line 6, but it doesn't serve any purpose; it is a "useless statement." When Codecademy says "// Call timesTwo here!" it means the line below the comment, where the return value would be assigned to newNumber. I see you have already done that, so you're almost done. :smile:

I honestly don't know why Codecademy claims you didn't print out the value of newNumber; you did. Perhaps that extra statement confused it?
