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

I am just completely lost on this and would like an example.

I'm trying my best to figure it out step by step but it's confusing me for some reason when throwing in the conditional statements. An example would be nice or just a couple of first step by step instructions.

script.js
function max (high, low){
 return 
}

Task 1 - you have to just make function ( never give SPACE after function name ! ), then just IF statment to check with walue if more :)

function max(number_A, number_B) {
  if (number_A > number_B) {
    return number_A;
  }
  return number_B;
}

Task 2 - Check if its working :D

function max(number_A, number_B) {
  if (number_A > number_B) {
    return number_A;
  }
  return number_B;
}

alert(max(10, 20));
