In your original getNumber, you may be thinking of the concept of
"output variables", where an assignment to a particular
specially-designated variable sets the function's result.  Languages
like Fortran or Matlab do this.

However, Python doesn't do this.  There's an explicit "return"
statement that we use to note the result of a function.
