This question is linked to a video instead of a challenge, but here's a generic example of a function defined to take a single parameter:

def add_six(val):
    return val + 6;

In this case, "val" is the single parameter.

Those {} characters are normally called "braces" or "curly braces", and they mark the beginning and end of a function's code body in JavaScript. But I see now that your question relates to Python so I changed the example.

Does the question give the single parmeter?

OK, so the structure will be similar to my example but the expression that the function returns will be different.
