To find the largest of two ints use Math. max, e.g.
// finding the bigger of two ints int bigger = Math.max( a, b ); // also works with long, float and double e.g. double biggerDouble = Math.max( aDouble, bDouble );
To find the largest of three ints use Math. max, e.g.
// finding the bigger of three ints int biggest = Math.max( Math.max( a , b ), c ); // also works with long, float and double e.g. double biggestDouble = Math.max( Math.max( aDouble, bDouble ), cdouble );
To find the biggest of a set, you presume the first element is the biggest and then look for an even bigger element.
