Maximum of four numbers

  • 4
  • Locked
Finding the maximum is an n-ary operation (an operation on n numbers) that returns the largest of several numbers. Never mind. We have no need for such definitions at the secret CodeGym center. We're here to learn how to write code. In this task, you need to use the keyboard to enter four numbers. Then determine the largest of them and display it on the screen.

why this solution is considered wrong? I've tried it several times and everything seems fine.

I used Arrays.sort() to get the max number.

The topic of Level 4 Lesson 6 should give some insight as to how to correct your code. It was so simple once I realized the most important word. "Equal to"

Thank the community help, because I forgot the negative value. If your result from your code It will be ok but you can't pass in Requirements 3 and 4. Try to change your input data from 8,9,5,8 to -8,-9,-5,-8, and check your result again! Good luck

When using Intellij how do you input your own numbers? When I attempt to use "Run" and then type in the console I can only enter 1 number. When I push enter I receive the following message. xception in thread "main" java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "1 " at java.base/java.lang.NumberFormatException.forInputString( at java.base/java.lang.Integer.parseInt( at java.base/java.lang.Integer.parseInt( at com.codegym.task.task04.task0419.Solution.main(

Your input string is "1 " (spaces after the number are an error) You should enter only the number.

Hey first time posting in here but I am confused why / how I can get the correct output but still not pass verification. Can anyone see what I am missing? Thank you!

Hint: If you were able to complete Level 2 Lesson 8 (Minimum of Four Numbers), the same rules apply. Only instead of creating a separate method to do the work, it can all be done with if statements in the main. Extra Hints: Research the commands min and max. You can call them through the Math class or you can call them through the Integer class. An example of calling this would be exactly how you call parse. Extra Extra Hints: if you add 2 numbers together and divide them by 2, what is the answer? Can that result somehow complete one of the conditions of the assignment?
