so, above, you have a function. That function does, in fact, calculate a value between 1 and 10 - but it does *nothing* with that value. When @ieahleen asked you about *the return statement*, thereâ€™s a point. Every function returns a value, even if we donâ€™t specifically say `return`

. If we donâ€™t `return`

some value, our function still will return something - if we donâ€™t specify, it will return `undefined`

.

So hereâ€™s an example:

```
function myFunctionThatReturnsSomething(){
const returnedValue = 'I am a string.';
return returnedValue;
};
```

This function, when called, `return`

s a value. That value is a string, so we can do

```
const myStringyThing = myFunctionThatReturnsSomething();
// now, myStringyThing === 'I am a string.'
```

So, in the function I quoted at the top of this, you have a mathematical expression, but you donâ€™t actually **return** the value youâ€™ve just calculated. Can you figure how to do that?

For the record, this is exactly the kind of thing the FCC javascript track can help you to learn.
