Is anyone able to point my toward the "unexpected "("?

I am currently having a hard time with this challenge. It keeps saying unexpected "(", as long as the () is after my function. Am I not correct that a function requires a ()? I would appreciate any help with this. Thank you so much!

Function() => console.log("Hello World!"))

functionRunner(function() {
     console.log("Hello world!");
}

```app.js
function() => console.log("Hello World!")

functionRunner(function() =>
  console.log("Hello World!"))
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <title></title>
        <link rel='stylesheet' href='styles.css'>
    </head>
    <body>
        <section>
            <p>Open your browser's console to see the results</p>
        </section>
        <script src='runner.js'></script>
        <script src='app.js'></script>
    </body>
</html>
runner.js
function functionRunner(callback) { 
  callback();
}

Your first line of code has an extra ")" at the end from what I see
