I don't get it

I don't know what to do, which argument do I return because it keep saying, "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing.". please explain to me what do I need to add?

function returnValue(value, echo,) {
  return value * echo ;
  var echo = returnValue('hello')
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

Just move the last line out of your function when you're actually calling it:

function returnValue(value) {
  return value;

var echo = returnValue("hello");
