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

function max (p50, p100) { if (p50 > p100) { return p50; } else { return p100; } } alert (max)(p50

I am stuck on the last question on this . it is a alert ()(); but where does it go.

function max (p50, p100) {
  if (p50 > p100) {
    return p50;
  } else {
    return p100;

Just put it at the bottom, after your function. Inside the alert, call your function and give it two values, something like this:

alert( max(21, 15) );

By the way, funny choice for variable names. It works fine, but that's the kind of thing that can give other programmers that have to work on your code nightmares. :wink:
