Java Question

Find the max of 3 numbers in Java with different data types

Say I have the following three constants:

final static int MY_INT1 = 25;
final static int MY_INT2 = -10;
final static double MY_DOUBLE1 = 15.5;


I want to take the three of them and use
Math.max()
to find the max of the three but if I pass in more then two values then it gives me an error. For instance:

// this gives me an error
double maxOfNums = Math.max(MY_INT1, MY_INT2, MY_DOUBLE2);


Please let me know what I'm doing wrong.

Answer

Math.max only takes two arguments. If you want the maximum of three, use Math.max(MY_INT1, Math.max(MY_INT2, MY_DOUBLE2)).
