function max(une, deus){
 if (une>deus) {
   return une;
  else {
    return deus;
alert( max(3, 4));

you don't need a ; between the function name and ().

the parameters need names to be declared in the function definition. I chose une, deus.

Once, you have a function declared, test which value is bigger and return it.

The values matter when you invoke/call the function.

so how do i add an alert beneath the function and call it to two numbers I'm lost mate!!!
