## scala.math.max() Function Example

Here, we will read two double numbers from the user and find the largest number between two numbers using scala.math.max() function and print the result on the console screen.

## Scala code to find the largest number using scala.math.max() function

The source code to find the largest number using scala.math.max() function is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on the ubuntu 18.04 operating system successfully.

```// Scala program to find the largest number using
// scala.math.max() function

object Sample{
def main(args:Array[String]){
var num1:Double    = 0;
var num2:Double    = 0;
var maxNum:Double = 0;

print("Enter number1: ")

print("Enter number2: ")

maxNum= scala.math.max(num1,num2)
println("Maximum number: "+maxNum);
}
}
```

## Output

```Enter number1: 10.2
Enter number2: 34.2
Maximum number: 34.2
```

## Explanation

In the above program, we used an object-oriented approach to create the program. Here, we created an object Sample. We defined main() function. The main() function is the entry point for the program.

In the main() function, we created three variables num1, num2, maxNum that are initialized with 0. Then we read both numbers from the user and then we find the largest number using scala.math.max() function and printed the result on the console screen.

Here, scala.math is a package that contains the definition of max() function.
