I'm not sure how to set the default value of a variable to the value of another variable. Help!

How do I set the default value of a variable to the value of another variable?

$base-font-size: 16px;
$context: 16px;

@function px-to-rem($target, $context) {
 @return ($context = $base-font-size !default);
