In this program, the user is asked to enter three numbers.

Then this program finds out the largest number among three numbers entered by user and displays it with a proper message.

This program can be written in more than one way.

## Example 1: Find Largest Number Using if...else Statement

```
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main() {
double n1, n2, n3;
cout << "Enter three numbers: ";
cin >> n1 >> n2 >> n3;
// check if n1 is the largest number
if(n1 >= n2 && n1 >= n3)
cout << "Largest number: " << n1;
// check if n2 is the largest number
else if(n2 >= n1 && n2 >= n3)
cout << "Largest number: " << n2;
// if neither n1 nor n2 are the largest, n3 is the largest
else
cout << "Largest number: " << n3;
return 0;
}
```

**Output**

Enter three numbers: 2.3 8.3 -4.2 Largest number: 8.3

## Example 2: Find the Largest Number Using Nested if...else statement

```
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main() {
double n1, n2, n3;
cout << "Enter three numbers: ";
cin >> n1 >> n2 >> n3;
// check if n1 is greater than n2
if (n1 >= n2) {
// if n1 is also greater than n3,
// then n1 is the largest number
if (n1 >= n3)
cout << "Largest number: " << n1;
// but if n1 is less than n3
// but n1 is greater than n2
// then n3 is the largest number
else
cout << "Largest number: " << n3;
}
// else, n2 is greater than n1
else {
// if n2 is also greater than n3,
// then n2 is the largest number
if (n2 >= n3)
cout << "Largest number: " << n2;
// but if n2 is less than n3
// but n2 is greater than n1
// then n3 is the largest number
else
cout << "Largest number: " << n3;
}
return 0;
}
```

**Output**

Enter three numbers: 2.3 8.3 -4.2 Largest number: 8.3
