Need help with max() challenge...

Not quite sure what is wrong here. I don't even know which part should I fix.

script.js
function max (number1, number2) {
 var number1 = 15;
 var number2 = 7;
 if ('number1' > 'number2') {
return number1; 
} else () {
return number2;
}
}

I fixed it.

function max (number1, number2) {
 if (number1 > number2) {
return number1; 
} else  {
return number2;
}}
max(1,2);
console.log(max(1,2));

You don't need '' when you use numeric value. it only needs strings.
