# C++ Program to Find Greatest of Two Numbers

## Program to find the Greatest of two numbers

Here we will discuss how to find the greatest of two numbers entered by the user in c++ programming language.

To find greatest of two numbers the use of if else statement is required along with the relational operator ‘>

### Working

• Two inputs are taken from user.
• The inputs are stored in two int type variables say first and second respectively.
• The two inputs are compared using the if else statement with the condition:

if( first > second )

• If the above mentioned condition is true then first is greater than the second.

Otherwise second is greater than the first.  ### C++ Code

`//C++ program//Greatest of two numbers#include<iostream>using namespace std;//main programint main(){    int first,second;    cout<<"Enter first number: ";    cin>>first;    cout<<"Enter second number: ";    cin>>second;    if(first==second)    {        cout<<"both are equal";    }    else if(first>second)    {        cout<<first<<" is greater than "<<second;    }    else    {        cout<<second<<" is greater than "<<first;    }    return 0;}`

#### Output

`Enter first number: 11Enter second number: 9797 is greater than 11`
