Learn Introductory JavaScript by Building a Pyramid Generator - Step 55

Tell us what’s happening:

I keep getting this error that my function should return the sum of the two numbers, which it does give me the output of 15. What am I doing wrong. I am having trouble grasping the concepts.
// running tests
Your function should return the sum of the two numbers.
// tests completed
// console output


Your code so far

const character = "#";
const count = 8;
const rows = [];

function padRow(name) {
  return name;

// User Editable Region

function addTwoNumbers() {
  return 5 + 10;
const sum = addTwoNumbers (5 + 10);

// User Editable Region

const call = padRow("CamperChan");

for (let i = 0; i < count; i = i + 1) {
  rows.push(character.repeat(i + 1))

let result = ""

for (const row of rows) {
  result = result + "\n" + row;

You created a function as they wanted but you haven’t done everything they asked for.

The next thing you needed to do was:

This function should take two arguments

After that, you need to add the parameters and return them.

Please note this is not how you call a function that takes two arguments.
You should provide a comma separated list of arguments 5,10 not 5+10

So the first part of the code should look like this correct?

function addTwoNumbers (5, 10) {
return 5 + 10;

instructions for this part:Declare a function named addTwoNumbers . This function should take two arguments and return the sum of those two arguments.
arguments for the function should be alphabetical.

So you mean something like this when you say alphabetical: (num1, num2).

If so, please explain. I am having some difficulty grasping the concepts. They kind of come in and fade. I hope that means I am in the right direction.

You cannot hard-code function parameters like this. You need to review how to create functions:



If you’re ever unclear on something you need to search for it and review it. You should be doing this all the time and get used to it.
