if a,b and c are numbers

if(a>b)
{
if(a>c)
{("a is largest")}
else
{("c is largest")}
}
else
{
if(b>c)
{("b is largest")}
else
{("c is largest")}
}

simply put all numbers in array and call max method.

a=[2,3,4]
a.max

yes Rovin ruby way

if we want to get the highest 3 values , then how can we write the code for that .?

data = [10, 20, 70, 60, 40, 30]
ordered_data = data.sort_by {|num| -num}

p ordered_data
p ordered_data[0..2]

--output:--
[70, 60, 40, 30, 20, 10]
[70, 60, 40]

data = [10, 20, 70, 60, 40, 30]
ordered_data = data.sort_by {|num| -num}

p ordered_data
p ordered_data[0..2]

Or data.sort.last(3)

I think you might need ruby 1.9 to be able to pass an argument to last
like that.
