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

simple javascript question

Can you someone spot what's wrong here? The prompt tells me to write this last line as I have and I can't figure out why it isn't taking it.

function max(snacc,attacc){
  if (snacc > attacc){
    return snacc
      return attacc
 alert( max(snacc,attacc) );

Thank you fren
