C Program to Find Maximum of Two Numbers

• Write a C program to read two numbers and find maximum numbers using if else statement.
• Wap in C to find largest number using ternary operator.

Required Knowledge

We will first take two numbers as input from user using scanf function. Then we print the maximum number on screen.

C program to find maximum of two numbers using If Else statement

/**
* C program to print maximum or largest of two numbers
*/

#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
int a, b;
/*
* Take two integer as input from user
*/
printf("Enter Two Integers\n");
scanf("%d %d", &a, &b);

if(a > b) {
/* a is greater than b */
printf("%d is Largest\n", a);
} else if (b > a){
/* b is greater than a*/
printf("%d is Largest\n", b);
} else {
printf("Both Equal\n");
}

return 0;
}

Output

Enter Two Integers
3 6
6 is Largest

Enter Two Integers
7 2
7 is Largest

Enter Two Integers
5 5
Both Equal

C program to find maximum of two numbers using ternary operator

/**
* C program to print maximum or largest of two numbers
* using ternary Operator
*/

#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
int a, b, max;
/*
* Take two integer as input from user
*/
printf("Enter Two Integers\n");
scanf("%d %d", &a, &b);

if(a == b){
printf("Both Equal\n");
}

max = (a > b) ? a : b ;
printf("%d is Largest\n", max);

return 0;
}

Output

Enter Two Integers
5 6
6 is Largest

Enter Two Integers
5 5
Both Equal
