If i am using Math.max(a, Math.max(b, c)) , but, say, b and c are the same and are both bigger than a, then which does it chose to return?

Since they're primitives, not objects, there is no concept of returning one or the other. They're indistinguishable from each other, and from all other variables having the same value.
