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

what is wrong with my function?

The code challenge I am taking is notifying me about how there is something wrong with the "return" aspect of my function...but Im not seeing what the issue is...

script.js
function returnValue(upper) {
  var returnValue = Math.floor( Math.random() * 6 ) + 1; 
  return returnValue;
}
index.html

You are pretty close with this challange.

Question only wants a simple function that accepts one value and returns that value.

No complicated function needed the following is all that the question wants.

function returnValue(upper) {
  var returnValue = upper; 
  return returnValue;
}
