In this tutorial, you shall learn how to find the largest of given two numbers in Kotlin, with the help of example programs.

Kotlin – Find largest of two numbers

To find the largest of given two numbers in Kotlin, we can use Greater-than or Less-than operator and compare the two numbers.

If `a` and `b` are given two numbers, the condition to check if `a` is greater than `b` is

`a > b`

The above condition returns true if `a` is greater than `b`, or else, it returns false.

Program

In the following program, we read two numbers from user and store them in `a` and `b`, then use Greater-than comparison operator to find the largest of `a` and `b`.

Main.kt

```fun main() {
print("Enter first number : ")
print("Enter second number : ")

if (a > b) {
print("\$a is the largest of \$a and \$b")
} else {
print("\$b is the largest of \$a and \$b")
}
}```

Output #1

```Enter first number : 4
Enter second number : 6
6.0 is the largest of 4.0 and 6.0```

Output #2

```Enter first number : -9
Enter second number : 7
7.0 is the largest of -9.0 and 7.0```
