Change Temp

Hint. First, create a standard function named convert temperature

function convertTemperature(celsius, decimalPlaces = 1) {

  // decimalPlaces = decimalPlaces || 1;
  // if (!decimalPlaces) {
    // decimalPlaces = 1;
  // }
  const fahrenheit = celsius * 1.8 + 32;

  return Number(fahrenheit.toFixed(decimalPlaces));
// Call the function, override the default value
console.log(convertTemperature(21, 0));
