function returnValue(width){
  var echo (width);
  return width;
returnValue ('width');
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

This is how you are supposed to implement action 2:

function returnValue(width){

  return width;

var echo=returnValue('somevalue');

You are required to create a variable and assign to it the value returned by the function

Hope it helps
