Algorithm to find Maximum of three numbers

In this tutorial, we are going to write an algorithm to find the Maximum of three numbers. using this algorithm we can write a program to find a Maximum of three numbers in most programming languages like Java, Python, C++, and C programming.

Algorithm to find the Maximum of three numbers.

1. Read A, B, C.
2. If A > B, then:
3.   If A > C, then:
4.       Set MAX:=A
5.   Else:
6.      Set MAX:=C.
7.   [End of If structure]
8.  Else:
9.     If B > C, then:
10.       Set MAX:=B.
11.    Else:
12.       Set MAX:=C.
13.   [End of If Structure.]
14. Write MAX.
15. Exit

Here in the above Algorithm we first read three numbers A, B and C. then we check if the value of A is greater than B and again we check if the value of A is greater than C then we set the value of A to the MAX variable. else we will set the value of C to the MAX variable. here first if the condition will end and in the second else condition we will check if the value of B is greater than C then we will set the value of B to the MAX variable else we will set the value of C to the MAX variable. after that, we will write the value of MAX to the output screen and the Exit from the program.
