Python tutorial - String Multiplication

Answered

Working through the Python tutorial in PyCharm and when I have the following code and check the task it says "use multiplication".

hello = "hello"
ten_of_hellos = hello * 10
print(ten_of_hellos)

The output does show ten hellos strung together:

hellohellohellohellohellohellohellohellohellohello

Is this a bug in the tutorial? I am using PyCharm.edu 3.0 on macOS Sierra
