public static int findSmall(int n1, int n2,int n3)//this method returns an int and picks the bigger one

return n1;
else if(n2 < n1 && n2< n3)
return n2;
else if(n3 < n1 && n3″);
int number1=sc.nextInt();
System.out.println(“Please enter the second integer–>”);
int number2=sc.nextInt();
System.out.println(“Please enter the third integer–>”);
int number3=sc.nextInt();

System.out.println(“\nThe smallest of the values is ” +findSmall(number1,number2,number3));
