Why do we call the functions at the bottom of the program rather than in between each function?

def get_name()        #gets a variable that is a name

  print "Enter your name: "

  return gets.chomp
 name= get_name()  #your calling the function but unless you set it equal to name, it won't be able to be stored for furthur use letter in other functions. 

def greet(name)
 puts "Hi, #{name}!"
  if (name== "Nathan")
    puts "That's a great name!"

def get_number()
  print "What number would you like to test?"
  return gets.chomp.to_i
number= get_number()

def divisible_by_3?(number)
  return (number%3==0)

      #functions called in correct order

if divisible_by_3?(number)

  puts "Your number is divisible by 3"
  puts "Your number is not cleanly divisible by 3"

as opposed to

name= get_name()       #functions called in correct order
number= get_number()
