# Write a program that asks the user for two integer numbers. Compare the two numbers and output the higher one ????

```const higherLowerInteger = integer(prompt("Enter two integer numbers please?"));

function integer(a, b) {
var message = " ";
if (a >= 0 && b >= 0) {
if (a != b) {
message = "The larger number is " + Math.max(a, b);
} else {
message = "Both numbers are equal!";
}
} else {
}
}

console.log(integer(-1, -1));
```

Hello

You've almost got it to show your console log, you just need to return the message after the function is run to display it:

```function integer(a, b) {
var message = " ";
if (a >= 0 && b >= 0) {
if (a != b) {
message = "The larger number is " + Math.max(a, b);
} else {
message = "Both numbers are equal!";
}
} else {
}
return message; // This bit was missing
}

console.log(integer(2, 2));
```

However for the prompt, you have 2 options:

1. Split the result to get the 2 numbers.
```const higherLowerInteger = integer(prompt("Enter two integer numbers please?"));

function integer(numbers) {
const numArr = numbers.split(',');
const a = numArr[0];
const b = numArr[1];
if (a > b) {
return a;
} else if(b > a) {
return b;
} else if (a === b) {
return 'equal';
}
}
console.log(higherLowerInteger);
```
1. Display 2 prompts.
```const firstOne = integer(prompt("Enter an integer number please?"));
const secondOne = integer(prompt("Enter another integer number please?"));

function integer(a, b) {
if (a > b) {
return a;
} else if(b > a) {
return b;
} else if (a === b) {
return 'equal';
}
}
console.log(integer(firstOne ,secondOne ));
```

Hi, I actually came up with another solution ...

var firstOne = integer(parseInt(prompt("Enter an integer number please?"), prompt("Enter another integer number please?")));

function integer(a, b) { var message = " "; if (a >= 0 && b >= 0) { if (a != b) { message = "The larger number is " + Math.max(a, b); } else { message = "Both numbers are equal!"; } } else { message = "Please add an integer!"; } return message; }

console.log(integer(2, 3));

But the output now shows like "The larger number is 3" Why wouldn't it show the real number??? Thanks
