Challenge: Max with Nested Functions

Test yourself and implement what you have learned so far in this challenge.

Problem Statement

In this challenge, you need to create a nested function max which will be defined in the body of the function mainMax. mainMax returns the maximum of three numbers using the max function.

You will need to write the max function from scratch. Take some time and try to figure out how many parameters it should have and what the return value will be. You will also need to figure out what mainMax will return. Remember how in the previous lesson sqrt was returning the return value of sqrtIter.


The inputs of the mainMax function are three numbers a, b, and c of type Int.


The output will be the maximum of a, b, and c.
