# Write a program that exchanges the values of the variables x and y if x is greater than y.

Let’s write a program that exchanges the values ​​of the variables x and y if x is greater than y.

To do this, we need to introduce an additional variable z to store the value of one of the variables.

program 1;
var x, y, z: integer;
begin
writeln (‘Enter the values ​​of the variables x and y’);
if x> y then
begin
z: = x;
x: = y;
y: = z;
writeln (‘x =’, x);
writeln (‘y =’, y);
end;
end.

Let’s check the operation of this program in two ways:

1) Let x = 5; y = 4.

Then the program compares the values ​​of x and y (5> 4) and proceeds to the next step:

z = 5, x = 4, y = 5.

And it will display: x = 4, y = 5.

2) Let x = 3; y = 4.

Then the program, comparing the values ​​of x and y (3 <4), will stop its further calculation.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
