Given four numbers, print the maximum of the 4 entered numbers without using conditional or bitwise operator (not even ternary operators).
Input : 4 8 6 5 Output : 8 Input : 11 17 8 17 Output : 17
We use the fact that value of “(x – y + abs(x – y))” will be 0 of x is less than or equal to y. We use this value as index in an array of size 2 to pick maximum. Once we have found maximum of two elements, we can use same technique for finding maximum of all.
Maximum of four : 18
