I think what you're confused as to how arguments work in functions. Here's what you want:

function add10(num) { //This line is declaring  function named add10 that takes an argument named num
  return num + 10;

add10(1) //Call the add10 function and pass it the argument 1

You were trying to both create and call a function in one go, the point of functions is re-usability, you want to define the function in a way that can accept more than one argument, The code above will also let you pass 2 or 100 to the funciton.
