## Day 2 - 4 Python Methods For Finding The Maximum of Two Numbers

• In this post, we'll look at how to find the maximum of two values in Python. We have four options for getting a maximum of two numbers. We will learn all four approaches sequentially.

### Python calculates the maximum between two integers using four different ways.

• The first is to examine the maximum element using a conditional statement, if-else condition.
• Second, find the biggest element using a built-in method, max().
• Third, employing the ternary operator.
• The lambda function is the final method.

### Methods 1: Using an if-else statement, get the maximum of two integers.

• To find the biggest value of the two integers, we will utilize if-else ladders with conditional operators in this method.

### Method 2: Using the max() method, find the maximum of two integers.

• The max() function from Python's built-in library will be used in this method.

### Output:

• Enter the num1: 40
• Enter the num2: 70
The maximum of all values is 70

### Method 3: Using the ternary operator, find the maximum of two integers.

• In this method, we'll utilize Python's ternary operator to output the greatest value of two values.
• The Ternary Operator is a one-line condition that may be used instead of an if-else expression.

### Output:

• Enter the num1: 30
• Enter the num2: 90
The maximum of all values is 90

### Method 4: Using the lambda function, find the maximum of two integers.

• A lambda function is an anonymous function that can accept any number of parameters. However, there is only one expression.

### Output:

• 4 is a maximum number
