Help Creating an Anonymous Callback Function

Keep getting either a syntax error or that the log didn’t go through the functionRunner. Help would be appreciated,

function log() {
  console.log("Hello World!");


functionRunner(function() {
  console.log("Hello World!");
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
        <link rel='stylesheet' href='styles.css'>
            <p>Open your browser's console to see the results</p>
        <script src='runner.js'></script>
        <script src='app.js'></script>
function functionRunner(callback) {

Pretty sure this is all you need in your app.js to callback the log as an anonymous function:

functionRunner(function () {
  console.log("Hello World!");

Hope that helps, Dylan
