This is called a ternary operator. int c -> we will assign a value to c (a < b) ? -> the question mark indicates we will assign c to a value depending on the outcome of the preceeding boolean condition (in this case a < b) The first value after the ? is what to assign to c if the boolean condition is true. The value after the : is what to assign if the boolean condition is false. Read ternary operators like an if-else assignment in one line. So... int c will be the value of b if (a < b) else it will the value of a Also the same as int c if(a < b) { c = b; } else { c = a; } Hope that makes sense?
