Let's see here is an example of a simple function that accepts two parameters. The function is called myFunction The parameters are p1 and p2 Then we can use the return statement to multiply p1 * p2. Next we call the function which is called myFunction, we call it like this myFunction(); Then I put in 2 random numbers to test myFunction. so we have myFunction(2, 4); And the output of that would be 8

function myFunction(p1, p2) {
    return p1 * p2;         

The output would be 8
