The rest of the instructions say "This function should return one value, the string 'Hello ' followed by the value of the name parameter."

So you'll likely want to use string concatenation to combine the word "Hello " (including the space) with your name parameter. You don't have any variable named hello, but you won't need one since you can perform the concatenation as part of the return statement.

And in case you've forgotten, string concatenation is done with the + operator.
