biggest

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.
