Challenge: Assignment with a Returned Value

Link to the challenge:

Hello @mudassirikram21. The instruction says:

Call the processArg function with an argument of 7 and assign its return value to the variable processed .

The lesson is teaching you how to assign a value to a variable declared using var keyword.

This challenge wants you to assign the functions return value to the variable processed.So the processed variable is initially set to 0.
you can also say var processed;
both declarations will work fine.
If you wanna store something you need a var
