JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Creating Reusable Code with Functions Create a max() Function

Even after using this alert(max(3, 4)); i still get the error that i'm not using two n Paul Israelumbers

Please what am i doing wrong?

script.js
function max(x, y){
 var largestNumber = Math.max(x,y);
  if (x > y){
    alert(x + "is the larger number") 
  } else {
    alert(y + "is the larger number") 
  }
  return largestNumber
}
alert(max(3, 4));

The additional alerts may be throwing it off. If you delete this:

if (x > y){
    alert(x + "is the larger number") 
  } else {
    alert(y + "is the larger number") 
  }

then you pass both challenges

Thank you ?
