## math.MaxInt16 Constant

The MaxInt16 constant is an inbuilt constant of the math package which is used to get the highest (maximum) value that can be represented by an int16.

The value of math.MaxInt16 constants is 1<<15 - 1 or 32767.

Syntax:

```int math.MaxInt16
```

Parameter(s):

• None

Return Value:

The return type of math.MaxInt16 constant is int, it returns the highest (maximum) value that can be represented by an int16.

Example 1:

```// Golang program to demonstrate the
// example of math.MaxInt16 Constant

package main

import (
"fmt"
"math"
)

func main() {
fmt.Printf("Type of math.MaxInt16 is %T\n", math.MaxInt16)
fmt.Println("Value of math.MaxInt16:", math.MaxInt16)
}
```

Output:

```Type of math.MaxInt16 is int
Value of math.MaxInt16: 32767
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we imported the math package to use the math.MaxInt16 constant, then printed the type and value of the math.MaxInt16 constant.

Example 2:

```// Golang program to demonstrate the
// example of math.MaxInt16 Constant

package main

import (
"fmt"
"math"
)

// creating function to
// return the value of MaxInt16.
func getMaxInt16() int {
return math.MaxInt16
}

func main() {
fmt.Println("Value of math.MaxInt16:", getMaxInt16())
}
```

Output:

```Value of math.MaxInt16: 32767
```
