        // Creating an empty TreeMap
        TreeMap<Integer, String> tree_map = new TreeMap<Integer, String>();
  
        // Mapping string values to int keys
        tree_map.put(10, "Geeks");
        tree_map.put(15, "4");
        tree_map.put(20, "Geeks");
        tree_map.put(25, "Welcomes");
        tree_map.put(30, "You");
  
        // Displaying the TreeMap
        System.out.println("The Mappings are: " + tree_map);
  
        // Displaying the lastKey of the map
        System.out.println("The last key is " + tree_map.lastKey());
    }
}
