# Find the Biggest of Three Numbers using C

In this tutorial, we will learn how to find out the largest number out of three numbers using simple if-else conditions in C programming Language.

## Method 1

```#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main()
{

int number1, number2, number3;

printf("Enter the first number : ");
scanf("%d", & number1);

printf("Enter the second number : ");
scanf("%d", & number2);

printf("Enter the third number : ");
scanf("%d", & number3);

if(number 1 > number 2 && number 1 > number 3){
printf("\n%d is the largest number you entered", number 1);
}
else
if(number2 > number1 && number2 > number3){
printf("\n%d is the largest number you entered", number2);
}
else
if(number3 > number1 && number3 > number2){
printf("\n%d is the largest number you entered", number3);
}
else printf("All numbers you entered are equal.\n");

return 0;
}

``` Largest Number. All three numbers are the same.

## Method 2

```#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main()
{

int number1, number2, number3 ;

printf("Enter the first number : ");
scanf("%d", & number1);

printf("Enter the second number : ");
scanf("%d", & number2);

printf("Enter the third number : ");
scanf("%d", & number3);

if((number1 == number2 ) && (number1 == number3))
printf("\nAll numbers you entered are equal.\n");
else{
int largest = number1;
if(number2 > largest) largest = number2;
if(number3 > largest) largest = number3;

printf("\n%d is the largest number you entered", largest);
}
return 0;
}```
