Description

The java.lang.StrictMath.max(long a, long b) method returns the greater of two long values. That is, the result is the argument closer to the value of Long.MAX_VALUE. If the arguments have the same value, the result is that same value.

Declaration

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

public static long max(long a, long b)

Parameters

  • 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
