Hi, I have been trying to solve this problem for a while now. I wrote a program that analyzes 3 numbers entered by a user. All calculations are working fine. Now I am attempting to use 'if' statements to display the largest and smallest number entered.

I am adjusting the code to determine the smallest number entered so I will just post the code to determine the largest. I know I must not be covering all the possiblities to determine the largest and smallest numbers entered. Can someone give me some guidance?

// determines the smallest entered number

result = "";

if ( number1 > number2 && number3 > number2)

result = result + number2;

if ( number1 < number2 && number3 > number2)

result = result + number1;

if ( number1 < number2 && number3 < number1)

result = result + number3;

// determines the largest entered number

result2 = "";

if ( number1 > number2 && number3 > number1)

result2 = result2 + number3;

if ( number1 < number2 && number3 < number2)

result2 = result2 + number2;

if ( number1 > number2 && number2 > number3)

result2 = result2 + number1;
