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

Where do I put the variable?

I don't understand the challenge properly I think. Wherever i put my variable it'll always be undefined.

function returnValue (argument){
  return argument;

returnValue("My argument")
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

You got it mostly right, except that you missed a step here.

Store the results of the function in a variable named echo.

// assign the return value of the function call to variable echo
var echo = returnValue("My argument");

great! thank you!
