# Python Program to Find the Large Number

Last Update : 09 Oct, 2022 Python, Programming, Example

The best way to learn Python programming is to write programs yourself by practicing examples.

You have given two numbers called number_1 and number_2. The task of this tutorial is to write a program to find a large number from these two numbers.

Program Structure -:

``````Input: number_1 = 20, number_2 = 44
Output: 44

Input: number_1 = -3, number_2 = -34
Output: -3

Input: number_1 = 3, number_2 = -4
Output: 3``````

There is more than one method to create this program. These methods are as follows.

Method 01 -:

Find the large number using the max() function. This returns the item with the highest value.

Syntax of max() function.

``max(n1, n2, n3, ...) Or max(iterable)``

Example -:

``````# Python program to find the
# highest value of two numbers

number_1 = 20
number_2 = 44

highest = max(number_1, number_2)
print(highest)``````

This program produces the following result -:

``44``

Method 02 -:

This is the most common approach for comparing numbers. Here, use the if-else statement to find the highest value.

Example -:

``````# Python program to find the
# highest value of two numbers

def highest_val(number_1, number_2):

if number_1 >= number_2:
return number_1
else:
return number_2

# Driver code
number_1 = 20
number_2 = 44

highest_value = highest_val(number_1, number_2)
print(highest_value)``````

This program produces the following result -:

``44``

Method 03 -:

Find the large number using Ternary Operator. A ternary Operator can be considered a conditional expression which is evaluate something based on true or false conditions.

Ternary Operator allows you to check a condition in a single line.

``````# Python program to find the
# highest value of two numbers

number_1 = 20
number_2 = 44

# Check with the ternary operator
print(number_1 if number_1 >= number_2 else number_2)``````

This program produces the following result -:

``44``
