Hey Ayub,

A paramater is a name that will be used to store a value passed to a function. It is defined when you define a new function and it can be whatever name you want but it is a convention to use a name that describe what is the value used for.

For example

public void bar(int parameter1, int parameter2) {
    ...code
}

bro thanks, so you mean parameter is like number,because int,is always followed by number. and this is stored, is that what you mean.
