Hi Aidan!

I think you just misunderstood the instructions a little bit, look here:

function returnValue(yourParameter) {
  return yourParameter;

var echo = returnValue('This string is now the value of the echo variable');

Read the instructions again while you watch that code snippet, do you understand now?

I hope that helps ,
