Java Program to pass method call as arguments to another method



In this article, we will understand how to pass method call as arguments to another method. We can call a method from another class by just creating an object of that class inside another class. After creating an object, call methods using the object reference variable.

Below is a demonstration of the same −

Input

Suppose our input is −

Enter two numbers : 2 and 3

Output

The desired output would be −

The cube of the sum of two numbers is:
125

Algorithm

Step 1 - START
Step 2 - Declare two variables values namely my_input_1 and my_input_2
Step 3 - We define a function that takes two numbers, and returns their sum.
Step 4 - We define another function that takes one argument and multiplies it thrice, and returns the output.
Step 5 - In the main function, we create a new object of the class, and create a Scanner object.
Step 6 - Now, we can either pre-define the number or prompt the user to enter it.
Step 7 - Once we have the inputs in place, we invoke the function that returns the cube of the input.
Step 8 - This result is displayed on the console.

Example 1

Here, the input is being entered by the user based on a prompt. You can try this example live in ourcoding ground tool run button.

import java.util.Scanner;
public class Main {
   public int my_sum(int a, int b) {
      int sum = a + b;
      return sum;
   }
   public void my_cube(int my_input) {
      int my_result = my_input * my_input * my_input;
      System.out.println(my_result);
   }
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Main obj = new Main();
      int my_input_1, my_input_2;
      System.out.println("Required packages have been imported");
      Scanner my_scanner = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("A reader object has been defined ");
      System.out.print("Enter the first number : ");
      my_input_1 = my_scanner.nextInt();
      System.out.print("Enter the second number : ");
      my_input_2 = my_scanner.nextInt();
      System.out.println("The cube of the sum of two numbers is: ");
      obj.my_cube(obj.my_sum(my_input_1, my_input_2));
   }
}

Output

Required packages have been imported
A reader object has been defined
Enter the first number : 2
Enter the second number : 3
The cube of the sum of two numbers is:
125

Example 2

Here, the integer has been previously defined, and its value is accessed and displayed on the console.

public class Main {
   public int my_sum(int a, int b) {
      int sum = a + b;
      return sum;
   }
   public void my_cube(int my_input) {
      int my_result = my_input * my_input * my_input;
      System.out.println(my_result);
   }
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Main obj = new Main();
      int my_input_1, my_input_2;
      my_input_1 = 3;
      my_input_2 = 2;
      System.out.println("The two number is defined as " +my_input_1 +" and " +my_input_2);
      System.out.println("The cube of the sum of two numbers is: ");
      obj.my_cube(obj.my_sum(my_input_1, my_input_2));
   }
}

Output

The two number is defined as 3 and 2
The cube of the sum of two numbers is:
125
