I am having trouble with this function exercise and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction.

Oops, try again. by_three(1) returned 'try again' instead of False

I thought that because 9 is divisible by 3, that it would then call the correct function, but instead it returns try again.

```
number = 9
def cube(number):
return number*number*number
def by_three(number):
if number % 3 == 0:
return cube(number)
else:
return 'try again'
```
