Instruction

Great! You've created your first function. In order to use your function, you have to call it:

def hello_world():
  print('Hello, World!')

hello_world()

This way, the function actually prints the Hello, World! sentence. Observe that the function call hello_world() is not indented. It is at the same indentation level as the def keyword. This way Python knows that the function definition is over and what follows is regular code.

Exercise
