# C Program to Find Greatest of Two Numbers ## Find Greatest of Two Numbers

In C programming language, the greatest of two numbers can be identified with the help of IF-ELSE statement. The user is asked to insert two integers. The numbers inserted are then calculated using a set of program to get the correct output. It will find the highest number among them using IF-ELSE Statement and start checking which one is larger to display the largest number.

Example – If the given  numbers are 12 and 9 then greater number is 12

## Working

• Step 1: Start
• Step 2: Insert two integers a and b from user with the help of scanf statement.
• Step 3: Check if a is bigger in value than b using if statement.
• Step4: If a is greater, then print a using the printf statement, if the case is vice versa then check whether b is greater than a with the help of elseif statement.
• Step 5: If b is greater than a, then print b using printf statement, if not then print a and b are equal using printf statement.
• Step 6: Stop

## C code

```#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
int a,b;
printf(“Insert two numbers:”);
scanf("%d %d",&a, &b);

if(a > b)
printf("%d is greatest",a);

else if(b > a)
printf("%d is greatest",b);

//for both are equal
else
printf("%d and %d are equal", a,b);

return 0;
}```

## Output

```Insert two numbers:3
5
5 is greatest
```
