function max(num1,num2){ if(num1>num2){ return num1; }else{ return num2; } } you missed the } sympbol.

Hi Kim, I think you missing the '{' and '}' symbol , I have add one "{" after the if statement's bracket, and close the "}" after the return two bracket.

This is my answer :

function max ( one, two) { if (one > two) { return one; }else { return two; }
