My code gives out error, please help.

I am just a beginner, my code gives out an error, please let me know what's wrong and how do I make it work. I am just trying to get my text 'Hello world' to display at 500 from the right edge and 400 from the bottom edge. The error appears on the text function line, it says that: ')' expected near 400, what does that mean?

This function gets called once every frame
function draw()
    -- This sets a dark background color 
    background(70, 192, 68, 255)

    -- This sets the line thickness

    -- Do your drawing here
    text("Hello, world(!"400, 500)

    @Sasha Here's your code with everything you don't need removed. Compare the text line here with yours to see what was wrong.

    function draw()
        background(70, 192, 68, 255)
        text("Hello, world!",400, 500)
