**Tell us what’s happening:**

So, I don’t think this should be that complicated. I used “a < 0 || b < 0” instead of “a || b < 0” to be extra specific, and kept “undefined” as a keyword and not a string like the directions said. What am I missing?

**Your code so far**

```
// Setup
function abTest(a, b) {
// Only change code below this line
if ("a < 0 || b < 0"){
return undefined;
}
// Only change code above this line
return Math.round(Math.pow(Math.sqrt(a) + Math.sqrt(b), 2));
}
// Change values below to test your code
abTest(2,2);
```
