I can't get this question: Call the function by giving an age in the space for a parameter. Tried a few things...

i'm not sure what this question means

function random_age(age) {
  return Math.floor(Math.random() * age);

You pass values (arguments) to a function by placing them inside of the parenthesis that follows the function name.

If I had a function named example, then I would pass the number 5 to it like this: example(5). A string would be passed in the same way: example("Hello World"). You can pass multiple arguments by separating them with a comma: example(5, 10).

To complete the third task, you just need to place a number within the parenthesis of the random_age function call.
