Author: Eric Spishak (on 2010/12/28)

Consider the following method.

public static void ifElseMystery(int a, int b) {
    if (a < b) {
        a = a * 2;
    if (a > b) {
        a = a - 10;
    } else {
    System.out.println(a + " " + b);

For each call below, indicate what output is produced.

ifElseMystery(10, 3);
ifElseMystery(6, 6);
ifElseMystery(3, 4);
ifElseMystery(4, 20);
