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; }

script.js
function returnValue(sandwich) { 
var echo = returnValue("hoagie");
return sandwich;
}
index.html

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 :)
