You should try to propose a solution of your own first. You'll learn more from trying to do it yourself than from getting the answer from someone else - if you still don't quite get it after that, you can bring your code here and the Community can help review your code.

As a start, try defining a function with an empty function body, that accepts two parameters num1 and num2. Then, think about how you can use a conditional statement to adjust your function's behaviour depending on which number is bigger.
