Declaration

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

public static long max(long a, long b)

  • a − This is the long value.

  • b − This is another long value.

Return 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) {

      long l1 = 4355335 , l2 = 8887765, l3 = -3255697;
   
      // both positive values
      double maxValue = StrictMath.max(l1, l2); 
      System.out.println("StrictMath.max(4355335, 8887765) : " + maxValue);

      // one positive and one negative value
      maxValue = StrictMath.max(l1, l3); 
      System.out.println("StrictMath.max(4355335, -3255697) : " + maxValue);    
   }
}

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

StrictMath.max(4355335, 8887765) : 8887765.0
StrictMath.max(4355335, -3255697) : 4355335.0
