# Java Program to Find Greatest of Two Numbers

## Greatest of two numbers using java :

In this article, we will simply create a program i.e. java program to find the greatest of two numbers. We will ask the user to enter two numbers and check which is greater. For this purpose, we use if-else statement to compare both numbers. ### Working :

Step 1 : Ask the user to enter two numbers.

Step 2 : Use the condition to check which number is greater by using if-else statement.

• If the first number is greater than the second number then print that first number is greater.
• If the second number is greater than the first number then print that second number is greater.
• Otherwise, both numbers are equal.

Step 3 : Print the resultant as per above conditions.

### Code in Java :

`//Java program to find greatest of two numbersimport java.util.Scanner;public class greatest_of_two_numbers{	public static void main(String[] args)	{		//scanner class declaration		Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);		//input first number				System.out.print("Enter the first number : ");						int first = sc.nextInt();		//input second number		System.out.print("Enter the second number : ");						int second = sc.nextInt();		//conditions		if(first > second)														System.out.println(first+" is greater than "+second);		else if(second > first)			System.out.println(second+" is greater than "+first);		else			System.out.println("Both numbers are Equal");		//closing scanner class(not compulsory, but good practice)		sc.close();														}}`

### Output :

`Enter the first number : 32Enter the second number : 6767 is greater than 32Enter the first number : 12Enter the second number : 12Both numbers are Equal`
