Biggest of 2 Numbers Using Function: C++

Find the biggest of two numbers using function and ternary operator.

Basics of functions:

A function is a sub program to perform a specific task.
OR
a group of instructions to perform specific task.

Along with main() it is possible to define our own functions by following these steps:
1. Function prototype or Function declaration.
2. Function call.
3. Function definition.

Function Prototype:

Giving information about the function such as return type, function name and arguments type to the compiler is known as function prototype; It is written at the declaration section.
Syntax:

< return_type > < function_name >( arguments_type );

Example:
int findsum(int a, int b);
float findsum(int a, int b);
void findsum(int a, int b);
int findsum(int a[], int size);
int findsum(int, int);

Function Definition:
Writing the actual code of the function in a block. It is at this stage the task of the function is defined. It is written after the main function.
Syntax:

< return_type >< function_name >(parameters)
{
 
}

Example:

int findsum(int a, int b)
{
 int sum;
 
 sum = a + b;
 return(sum);
}

Function Call:
It is a technique used to invoke a function.
Syntax:

[variable] < function_name >([arguments]);

Example:
res = findsum(10, 20);
res = findsum(x, y);
res = findsum();

}
