# 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:

Start by defining two variables, let's say

`num1`

and`num2`

, and assign them the values of the numbers you want to compare.Use the

`max`

method to compare the two numbers. This method returns the maximum of the two values.Assign the result of the

`max`

method to a new variable, let's call it`maximum`

.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.
