## Odd summation, else, even summation, script help

Here are the instructions from my instructor:

• Define a function getSum5(arg_n, arg_opt), that if arg_opt is equal to 1, it calculates the sum of odd numbers from 1 to arg_n: 1+3+5…+arg_n; if arg_opt is equal to 2, it calculates the sum of even numbers from 1 to arg_n: 2+4+6+… +arg_n.
• Example:
Input: n=6, opt=2
Output: 12

Here is my botched code
Code:
```<html>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript">

var input1=Number(prompt("Enter an integer:"));

document.write("The total even or odd summation value is: ", getsum5(input1));

function getsum5(x){

var out1 = 0;
var out2 = 0;

for(count=0; count<=x; count++){
if(count%2==1){

out1+=count;
return out1
}
else {
out2+=count;
return out2
}
}
}

</script>
</body>
</html>```

The proposed function has not two arguments ! Its can't return two values ! Its return a value before to finish the loop !
