Script does not work.

I am trying to learn how to script i have read the wiki and trying to make my first script.

The script i am trying to make is if you use the command /teleport it will teleport you 5 in the x direction.

It gives me an error on line 2 argument 1 and line 3 "attempt to perform arithmetic on local "x" (a boolean value)

function spawnPlayer(thePlayer, command) 
    local x,y,z = getElementPosition(thePlayer) 
    x = x + 5 
    local spawnedPlayer = spawnPlayer(x,y,z) 
    if (spawnedPlayer == true) then 
        outputChatBox("You have teleported",thePlayer) 
    end 
end 
addCommandHandler("teleport", spawnPlayer) 

Please do not just fix it, explain it to me.

Thanks in advance.

You can use :

setElementPosition 

also you don't need to wirite this x = x +5 simply you can do it like this :

function spawnPlayer(thePlayer, command) 
if not isElement(thePlayer) then return end  
    local x,y,z = getElementPosition(thePlayer) 
    setElementPosition(thePlayer,x+5,y,z) 
   
end 
addCommandHandler("teleport", spawnPlayer)
