Hi Nathan,

What you're building here is a function declaration. It is the main body of a function. You don't actually enter values at this stage but there's still a bit of work to do.

First, use your curly braces so JavaScript knows where to define function scope.

function (one, two) {


Then you'll need to provide the condition, in that function that waits for numbers to test an expression.

if (one > two) {
    return one;

Then later on when you call the function, this is when you pass in the actual values that the function will work with.
