fmaxf Function

Returns the value of the larger single-precision argument.

Include

<math.h>

Prototype

float fmaxf(float x, float y);

Arguments

x
any single precision floating-point number
y
any single precision floating-point number

Return Value

Returns the single-precision value of the larger argument.

Example

See the notes at the beginning of this chapter or section for information on using printf() or scanf() (and other functions reading and writing the stdin or stdout streams) in the example code.

#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
  float x, y, z;

  x = -5.7;
  y = 2.0;
  z = fmaxf(x, y);
  printf("The larger of %f and %f is %f\n", x, y, z);
}

Example Output

The larger of -5.700000 and 2.000000 is 2.000000
