Which is the correct way?

My code for this video is

function getArea(width, length, unit) { var area = (width*length) +" "+ unit; return area; } console.log(getArea (10,20,'sq ft'));

instead of:

function getArea(width, length, unit) { var area = (width*length); return area+" "+ unit; } console.log(getArea (10,20,'sq ft'));

They both works the same way. Is it any of them better than the other?

Thanks :)

To be honest, it all depends on how you like to layout your code. In my opinion, I prefer your method as it is easier to understand.

Keep up the good work ;) Alistair

There isn't really a "correct" way. They both output the same answer and work the same way. Now it's pretty much your choice of preference. Whatever way you like better.
