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

I'm new at this and genuinely don't understand why my code isn't working...

script.js
function max (firstNum, secNum){
  if (firstNum > secNum) {
  return firstNum;
} else { 
  return secNum
}
console.log(max (20, 100) );

Your code is ok but you missing closing curlybrace after function,

function max (firstNum, secNum){ if (firstNum > secNum) { return firstNum; } else { return secNum } } console.log(max (20, 100) );

with modern javascript you can write it also ilke this: const max = (firstNum, secondNum) => firstNum > secondNum ? firstNum : secondNum;

Tomas, thank you so much for your help!
