## BigDecimal Class max() method

• max() method is available in java.math package.
• max() method is used to return the least value of (this BigDecimal) and the given (BigDecimal ob).
• max() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
• max() method does not throw an exception at the time of returning the minimum value.

Syntax:

```    public BigDecimal min(BigDecimal ob);
```

Parameter(s):

• BigDecimal ob – represents the object with which the least is to be calculated when compare to this BigDecimal.

Return value:

The return type of this method is BigDecimal, it returns the BigDecimal whose value are smaller in any of the (this BigDecimal) and the given (BigDecimal ob).

Example:

```// Java program to demonstrate the example
// of BigDecimal min(BigDecimal ob) method of BigDecimal

import java.math.*;

public class MinOfBD {
public static void main(String args[]) {
// Initialize two variables first is
// of "int" and second is of "String"
// type
int val = 120;
String str = "100";

// Initialize two BigDecimal objects
BigDecimal b_dec1 = new BigDecimal(val);
BigDecimal b_dec2 = new BigDecimal(str);

// By using min() method - is to return
// the BigDecimal that holds the minimum
// value (least) in both of the compared object
// i.e. 120.min(100) it returns 100
BigDecimal min_val = b_dec1.min(b_dec2);
System.out.println("b_dec1.min(b_dec2): " + min_val);
}
}
```

Output

```b_dec1.min(b_dec2): 100
```
