# Maximum number finder

## World's simplest number tool

This web app quickly finds the maximum number between a bunch of numbers. To get the maximal value, just enter your list of numbers in the input field, adjust the separator between the numbers in the options below, and this utility will find the greatest number among them.

Maximum number finder tool
What is a maximum number finder?

This is an online browser-based program for finding the maximum number in a list of numbers. The input sequence of numbers can be positive and negative integers (for example, 10 and -175), decimals (for example, 0.5 and -4.2), and even fractions (for example, 1/4 and -9/2). By default, the list of numbers should be entered in a vertical column with each number on its own line. They can also be separated by a comma, semicolon, or any other character. You can adjust this separator symbol in the options. This application can also find several largest numbers in the list and also find the largest numbers by their magnitude (by taking the absolute value of each number). The behavior can be configured in the second block and third block of options. The options also include the ability to change the output number separator, if the output contains multiple maximum numbers. That's numberwang!

The Largest Number in a List

In this example, we compare eight numbers (five integer numbers and three decimal numbers) and find the greatest number among them. The numbers 9 and 9.00000001 are very close but the 9.00000001 is greater than 9 so this number is printed in the output. If the option find-absolute-value would have been enabled, then the largest number would have been -8000.

4
3.6
9
-10
0.01
1
9.00000001
-8000

9.00000001

**Required options**

Adjust input number separator.
(By default it's a line break.)

between them.
(By default it's a line break.)

Take a modulus of each
number before finding the
maximum among them.

Several Maximums

This example finds several biggest numbers in a sequence of numbers. The input sequence contains one hundred different numbers delimited by commas. There are natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, and rational numbers in this list. The tool finds the five largest values, sorts them by their magnitude, and delimits them by a semicolon symbol in the output.

-4, -17, 242.5, 1, 54, -99.9, 424/2, 80, -41, 104, -268, 37/4, 3.09, 47, 388/5, -58, -83, 165, 79, -19, -86, 1/2, 1.33, 5, 7, -369, 72, 164, 7.19, 2, -77, 34.8, 2.58, -81, -89, 2, 90, -2, 0, 43, -19, 82, -21, -232, 127, 108, -3, 9, -389, 1.55, 97, 2/7, 27, 51, -18, 25, 14/8, 28, 1.57, 18/9, 2/68, -283, -306, 1, 66, 3, 88, 1/9, 169, 124, 3, 114, -78, 14, 175, 78, 32, 161, 170, 137, 30.7, 34, 9.8, 2, 52, 71, 9/5, -241, 32, 3, -69, 220, 3.4, -48, 18, 84, 1, 350, 78, -92

Absolute Maximal Value

This example finds the absolute maximum number in a column of rational fractions. The absolute value (also called modulus) doesn't depend on the sign of the number, so all the minus signs are ignored. To find the maximum number, the fractional numbers are converted to decimals and compared through the modulus operation. The first number is |7/5| = 7/5 = 1.4, the second |-3/2| = 3/2 = 1.5, and the third |-8/3| = 8/3 ≈ 2.67. From these values, we see that the maximal value is 2.67, which corresponds to -8/3 fraction.
