Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.StrictMath.max() method

public static int max(int a, int b)

Parameters

  • a − This is the int value.

  • b − This is another int value.

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.lang.StrictMath.max() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class StrictMathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      int i1 = 45 , i2 = 20, i3 = -15;
   
      // both positive values
      double maxValue = StrictMath.max(i1, i2); 
      System.out.println("StrictMath.max(45, 20) : " + maxValue);

      // one positive and one negative value
      maxValue = StrictMath.max(i1, i3); 
      System.out.println("StrictMath.max(45, -15) : " + maxValue);    
  }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

StrictMath.max(45, 20) : 45.0
StrictMath.max(45, -15) : 45.0
