How and why is the log of the processSale function shown in that way?

In Challenge 2 at the end of the challenge function processSale () is run by referring it in the console.log()
"console.log("Total sale: $" + processSale(product, 3));" even though in the code the function is referred after the "Total sale..." part we can see in the console that the log "3 chairs were sold" is print before the "Total sale..." part. Can anyone please explain that behavior?

Dimitris, since the processSale function first logs the quantity sold to the console (ie, prior to returning the total sale), then the quantity sold is displayed prior to the total sale. Hope this helps.
