Confused on function

For this function here. What does "number_of_ticket" represent? It's no where in the while loop so how would it know what number_of_tickets even is? While loop only has num_tickets

def calculate_price(number_of_tickets): #Create a new constant for the 2 dollar service charge #Add service charge to what is due return (number_of_tickets * TICKET_PRICE) + SERVICE_CHARGE

number_of_tickets is the parameter of the function for when you call the function and pass in an argument ...so number_of_tickes is what you put in like ...calculate_price(5) (five = number_of_tickes... basically its a placeholder )
