could you please provide your code sample?

Complete the code below to call the function and pass the value 12 to it:

function getRandom( upper ) {

return Math.floor(Math.random() * upper) + 1;



The answer is 'getRandom(12)'. I am unsure if you are passing getRandom('12') but this would be a number adding the single quote would make it a string and not a number and cause you to fail.

Please remember to mark your best answer :)
