The arguments listed in function definition are known as formal arguments. And the arguments passed to function while invoking it, are known as actual arguments.

For e.g:
int foo(int a, int b)
return (a+b);

int main(void)
int var1 = 10, var2 = 10;
int result;
result = foo(var1, var2);
return 0;

in the above case, var1 & var2 are actual arguments and "a" and "b" are formal arguments.
