Java – Print the largest number in a given number – Java

Print the largest number in a given number – Java… here is a solution to the problem.

Print the largest number in a given number – Java

First of all, I apologize if my question is not very clear.

I want the output to be the maximum possible number of user input. Example:

input: x = 0; y = 9; z = 5;
output: 950

I tried code like the one below.

import java.util.Scanner;

class LargestOfThreeNumbers{
       public static void main(String args[]){
          int x, y, z;
          System.out.println("Enter three integers ");
          Scanner in = new Scanner(;

x = in.nextInt();
          y = in.nextInt();
          z = in.nextInt();

if ( x > y && x > z )
             System.out.println("First number is largest.");
          else if ( y > x && y > z )
             System.out.println("Second number is largest.");
          else if ( z > x && z > y )
             System.out.println("Third number is largest.");


code above prints something like: The seconde number is largest. This is the correct way I define conditional statements. But how to get 950 as the end result? I know some logic is needed here, but my brain can’t seem to produce it.

Thanks for your help.


You can do this to print the numbers sequentially:

// make an array of type integer
int[] arrayOfInt = new int[]{x,y,z};
 use the default sort to sort the array
 loop backwards since it sorts in ascending order
for (int i = 2; i > -1; i--) {
