The Math.Max() method returns the larger of two specified numbers.


Math.Max(num1, num2)

Math.Max() returns the greater value from num1 and num2.


The following example compares two integers i1 and i2 and writes the greater integer to the console.

using System;
public class Example {
public static void Main (string[] args) {
int i1 = -234, i2 = 345;
Console.WriteLine("Math.Max (int) = " + Math.Max(i1,i2));

This example results in the following output:

Math.Max (int) = 345
