JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Creating Reusable Code with Functions Passing an Argument to a Function

19,845 Points

code challenge problem

I am not sure how to start on this second code challenge task.

Now that you've created the returnValue function, call it, by passing it a literal string value -- a series of characters in quote marks like this: 'My argument'. Store the results of the function in a variable named echo.

function returnValue(height) {
  return (height);
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

var echo = returnValue('My argument');

Would it be something like

echo = returnValue('My argument');

Or even add a var?
