ruby max 2 numbers

To find the maximum of two numbers in Ruby, you can use the max method. Here are the steps to do so:

  1. Start by defining two variables, let's say num1 and num2, and assign them the values of the numbers you want to compare.

  2. Use the max method to compare the two numbers. This method returns the maximum of the two values.

  3. Assign the result of the max method to a new variable, let's call it maximum.

  4. Finally, you can print the value of maximum to output the maximum of the two numbers.

Here is an example code snippet that demonstrates these steps:

num1 = 10
num2 = 20

maximum = [num1, num2].max

puts maximum

In this example, num1 is assigned the value of 10, and num2 is assigned the value of 20. The max method is then used to compare these two values, and the result is stored in the maximum variable. Finally, the value of maximum is printed, which in this case would be 20.
