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.

don't use another variable to store the max, just use conditionals and display it

My solution, very simple: int max; max = a > b ? a : b; max = max > c ? max : c; max = max > d ? max : d;

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.

How to create max method that gets 4 numbers and returns the maximum number? This is a good discussion of Math.max.

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(NumberFormatException.java:68) at java.base/java.lang.Integer.parseInt(Integer.java:652) at java.base/java.lang.Integer.parseInt(Integer.java:770) at com.codegym.task.task04.task0419.Solution.main(Solution.java:13)

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