NISSAN MAXIMA ALTERNATOR PROBLEM

1986 Nissan Maxima • 205,000 miles

I bought a Nissan Maxima yesterday for real cheap, the battery keeps dying even though the guy I bought it from put in a new alternator. He didn't connect the negative (ground) wires to the alternator and I have no idea where they go. I'm pretty sure the grounds not being connected is why but not 100% sure. Could someone tell me where the wires go or if they can think of another reason the car could be doing this. Please and thank you.

Have you tested the alternator for charging?
