Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

              // Impure case 1: even with the same input, the output is different each time due to Math.random() generated within the function (this is also the case with dates!)
var myAge = 29;
var randomlyOlder = (currentAge) => currentAge + parseInt((Math.random() * 10).toFixed(0));
console.log('Randomly Older: ' + randomlyOlder(myAge)); 

// Impure case 2: the output depends on a value defined outside of the function.
var yourAge = 19;
var addSomeYears = (years) => yourAge + years;
console.log(addSomeYears(20));

// Pure versions of the above: 
// for inputs 29 and 10, the answer will always be 39 compared to the impure function above where, for input 20, the answer will vary depending on the value of yourAge.
var gettingOlder = (age, years) => age + years;
console.log(gettingOlder(29, 10));

// If you still wanted to use a random number, you can determine that outside the function, and pass it in as the years parameter:
var random = parseInt((Math.random() * 10).toFixed(0));
console.log('More random aging: ' + gettingOlder(29, random));
