Return Type: It returns 0 if the first number is equal to the second number, 1 if the first number is greater then the second number and finally -1 if the first number is less than the second number.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program of Float compare()``// method`` ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ `` ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``     ` `        ``// Applying compare method``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``5``).compare(``5``)``         ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``     ` `    ``}``} `
Output:

```0
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program of Float compare()``// method`` ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ `` ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``     ` `        ``// Applying compare method``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``5``).compare(``2``)``         ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``     ` `    ``}``} `
Output:
```1
```

Example #3:

 `// Scala program of Float compare()``// method`` ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ `` ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``     ` `        ``// Applying compare method``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``5``).compare(``9``)``         ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``     ` `    ``}``} `
Output:
