Can someone explain what parameters and arguments are in functions?
Basically, a parameter is the variable that has been referenced by a function and an argument is iterators such as values that are passed in to an argument. If you still don't understand please click here
Note I suggest you to watch beginners to advanced series on YouTube
Here's a simple script
function addNumbers(k, b) -- parameter print(k + b) end addNumbers(4, 9) -- argument
Parameters is a variable in the declaration of a function.
Arguments are the values that we are passing to be assigned to these variables that we declared.
-- Our function: function addNumbers(a, b) print(a + b) end addNumbers(4, 3) --[[ We declare our parameters: a, b We define our parameters: 4, 3 So: a = 4 b = 3 Output: 7 --]]
Arguments are values, parameters are variable names.
