      int largest = a

      if ( b is greater than largest )

      largest = b

      if ( c is greater than largest )

      largest = c

      no need for else

      Wouldn't it be better to make a loop to input numbers into an array and then do a reverse sort on it?

      This would then give you the highest value of N numbers, thus reducing your number of lines of code.
