If I want the code to also tell which one of them is older, is this correct? Or how would I do it..?


// Our person constructor
function Person (name, age) {
    this.name = name;
    this.age = age;
}

// We can make a function which takes persons as arguments
// This one computes the difference in ages between two people
var ageDifference = function(person1, person2) {
    return person1.age - person2.age;
};

// Make a new function, olderAge, to return the age of
// the older of two people
var olderAge = function (person1, person2){
    if (person1.age > person2.age){
        return person1.age
        var bigName = person1.name 
    }
    else if (person2.age > person1.age){
        return person2.age
        var bigName = person2.name 
    }
    else {
        return person1.age
        var bigName = "both of them"
    }
}

// Let's bring back alice and billy to test our new function
var alice = new Person("Alice", 30);
var billy = new Person("Billy", 98);

console.log("The older person is " + olderAge(alice, billy));
console.log("Who is" + bigName)

I went ahead and made it as simple as possible..

function olderAge(person1, person2) {
    if (person1.age > person2.age) {
        return person1.age;
    } else {
        return person2.age;    
    };
};

Worked for me as we were only comparing two people. If it was more, this become more..elaborate. :slight_smile:

@dipityg these are the problems with your code

You sort of have to remove this line because bigName is not defined

So that is really the problem
