JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Creating Reusable Code with Functions Passing an Argument to a Function

This challenge has got me stumped. Which part of the code am I missing?

function returnValue(sandwich) { var echo = returnValue("hoagie"); return sandwich; }

function returnValue(sandwich) { 
var echo = returnValue("hoagie");
return sandwich;
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

echo's declaration should be outside of the function.

function returnValue(sandwich) {
    return sandwich;

var echo = returnValue("hoagie");

Ah ha. I feel dumb. Thanks!

No problem :)
