1.if(a>b)?a:b;
2.Math.max(a,b);
Which one will compute fast .why

b.Math ob=new Math();
a static method can be accessed either through a class name or thru' an object .if so means is the above statement correct;will it compile;

Thanks in advance

1) There's little difference, but in a tight loop where you'll do this millions of times, calling the function is going to be a little slower.

2) "new Math()" won't compile because Math has no public constructors.
