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

I can't solve this problem. :( Create a new function named max which accepts two numbers as arguments (you can name the

function max(name, lastName) {
  return name + lastName; 
function max(4,5) {
 return max;

1 Answer

The goal of your function is to return the larger of the two numbers. To do this you need to make a comparison. Try an if statement and use the greater than symbol (>).

Thank you.
