You have solved the hard part! just Double check the syntax of writing a function in JavaScript and you should be fine. You are ask to Create a function named max that accepts two numbers as arguments. I should see the keyword function in your solution or you can make it an arrow function

HI Francesco,

It took me a minute, but I finally saw that you used const, which is for creating variables. Use function instead and it should work. Hope this helps!

Here is another way using Arrow function expressions

const max = (n1,n2) =>{ 

  if( n1 > n2){
    return n1;
  } else {
    return n2;
  }
}

console.log(max(10,5));
