# C Program to Find Maximum of Two Numbers

In this C program, we will learn about how to read two numbers and find maximum numbers using if else statement. We will first take two numbers as input from user using scanf function. Then we print the maximum number on screen.

## C program to find maximum of two numbers using If Else statement

```#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
int a, b;
printf("Enter Two Integers\n");
scanf("%d %d", &a, &b);

if(a > b) {
/* a is greater than b */
printf("%d is Largest\n", a);
} else if (b > a){
/* b is greater than a*/
printf("%d is Largest\n", b);
} else {
printf("Both Equal\n");
}

return 0;
}
```
Output
```Enter Two Integers
3 6
6 is Largest
```
```Enter Two Integers
7 2
7 is Largest
```
```Enter Two Integers
5 5
Both Equal
```

## C program to find maximum of two numbers using ternary operator

```#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
int a, b, max;

printf("Enter Two Integers\n");
scanf("%d %d", &a, &b);

if(a == b){
printf("Both Equal\n");
}

max = (a > b) ? a : b ;
printf("%d is Largest\n", max);

return 0;
}
```
Output
```Enter Two Integers
5 6
6 is Largest
```
```Enter Two Integers
5 5
Both Equal
```
