#Create a function named daysInMonth that takes 1 argument.
#The argument would be a string that is the month, and the function should
#return an integer that is the number of days the month has in it.

What I have tried:

def daysInMonth(x):
month = "February"
return month

daysInMonth(28)

print(daysInMonth)

Read the question again carefully. What is the input parameter? What is the expected return value? Think about how you would do this if someone asked you, "how many days are there in July?".

## Solution 1

You show no attempt to solve the problem yourself, you have no question, your main effort is pasting the requirement, you just want us to do your HomeWork.
HomeWork problems are simplified versions of the kind of problems you will have to solve in real life, their purpose is learning and practicing.

We do not do your HomeWork.
HomeWork is not set to test your skills at begging other people to do your work, it is set to make you think and to help your teacher to check your understanding of the courses you have taken and also the problems you have at applying them.
Any failure of you will help you to learn what works and what don't, it is called 'trial and error' learning.
So, give it a try, reread your lessons and start working. If you are stuck on a specific problem, show your code and explain this exact problem, we might help.

You are passing in an `integer` instead of a string.
Quote:
the function should return an integer that is the number of days the month has in it
You are returning a string.

You are also not doing anything with the parameter - the returned value needs to be different depending on the value of the parameter.
