JavaScript JavaScript Functions Pass Information Into Functions Create a max() Function

Finally, call the max function with two number arguments. Display the result of the function in the browser's JavaScript

Why can't it find the variable num2?

script.js
function max(num2, num3){
  if (num2>num3){
    return num2;
  }else{
    return num3;
  };
};
console.log(max(2,3));

function max(num2, num3){
  return num2 + num3;
}

console.log( max(num2, num3) );

I realized that when I put the variables in for the console, I made a mistake. But now it is saying that the 'max' function doesn't seem to work...

Hi Javier Caballero

You have everything correct, but you also have extra code that is not asked for or needed and this is what is causing the errors. If you delete the last 4 lines of code (not sure why they are even there?), everything works. Just delete everything after the line console.log(max(2,3));

Keep coding! :) :dizzy:
