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

I'm not sure why my JS isn't working for Challenge task 1 of 2.

I've tried many different variations of this code, but haven't had any luck. I've also checked the forums to see if anyone else was having issues with the same question, but haven't been able to find anything that has helped me answer the question correctly.

Thank you in advance for your help!

function max(1, 5) {
  if ( 1 > 5 ) {
    return 1;
  } else {
    return 5;

Try passing in variables as parameters, for example num1 and num2.
