Hello Hilary, You haven't posted your question fully. I have to go back to that section and checked for you. This is one of the possible solutions. CODE CHALLENGE Create a new function named max which accepts two numbers as arguments (you can name the arguments, whatever you would like). The function should return the larger of the two numbers. HINT: You'll need to use a conditional statement to test the 2 parameters to see which is the larger of the two.

Also, for future reference, it's frowned upon in the Community to post answers to code challenge that just work without explaining why it works. Accordingly, I've redacted the code in your answer. If you'd like, feel free to re-post the code in your answer, but be sure to explain why it works and fixes OP's problem. Also, be sure to modify it so it can't be copy/pasted into a challenge and pass. Thanks for helping out in the Community!
