Hey Javier,

Its asking you to create a function named max that took 2 arguments and returned the largest of the two. You got it mostly right if major is greater than menor you would return major since thats the largest. You also can check for the opposite, whether menor is greater than major or you can just add an else

function max(mayor, menor){

    if(mayor > menor){
        return mayor;
    }
    else {
        return menor;
    }
}
