the idea is: you have a button which calls a js fuction when you click it: <button onclick="add ()">Click to add </button> in this case the button calls the function add when you press it, now we have to define the function in js function add (){ //do something } next we need a input field for the user to type in the number <input type="number" id="myNumber"> finally we have to access that number when the user clicks the button function add (){ var number = document.getElementById("myNumber").value; alert (number*2); } now the full code <body> <input type="number" id="myNumber"> <button onclick="add ()">Click to add </button> <script> function add (){ var number = document.getElementById("myNumber").value; alert (number*2); } </script> </body> at the end I just alerted the number times 2 but you can do anything with it because it's now a variable
