Console in Google Chrome shows error when I input information

I get the following error with the coding treehouse workspaces for the "Giving information to functions" lesson. Any ideas why or how to avoid this in the console with google dev tools in the future? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

random.js:14 Uncaught ReferenceError: unit is not defined at getArea (random.js:14) at random.js:16

This could be a bit late but could you post your code please so I can see?

I'm guessing since it's not defined then have you typed " function getArea(width,length,unit) { " correctly?

This is what line 14 should look like: console.log(getArea(10,20, "sq ft") );

This is what the function should look like: function getArea(width, length, unit) {

Hope this helps.
