Basic JavaScript - Passing Values to Functions with Arguments

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Please can someone help me out, I’ve been at this for two days now, but it keeps saying functionWithArgs (1, 2) should output 3
I don’t understand where i’m getting it wrong

  **Your code so far**
function functionWithArgs(a, b){
console.log(1 + 2);
console.log(7 + 9);

Link to the challenge:

The issue is that you are supposed to use the parameters you passed in. You pass in two numbers:


And those get accepted into the function as a and b. But you don’t use them, you “hard code” 1 + 2 and 7 + 9. Don’t put numbers in there, use the parameters. That way it will use any numbers that are passed to it and not just what you’ve hard coded.

Thanks so much, it worked!, I first had a hard time understanding what you meant by me “hard coding” it, it felt like a big term to my beginners ears lol, but I finally got what you meant, thaks a lot.

We all start with “beginners ears”. This is hard stuff, it takes work. Keep up the good work.
