The question is to enter 3 numbers and find which is the larger of them but it will not run
Can someone please take a look at it.
import java.util.Scanner;
public class Largest {
	public static void main (String args[]) {
		Scanner input = new Scanner();
		int number1, number2, number3, weight1 = 0, weight2 = 0, weight3 = 0;
		System.out.println("Please enter the first number");
		number1 = input.nextInt();
		System.out.println("Please enter the second number");
		number2 = input.nextInt();
		System.out.println("Please enter the third number");
		number3 = input.nextInt();
		if ((number1 > number2) || (number 1 > number3)) {
			System.out.println("number 1 is the largest number");
		if ((number2 > number1) || (number2 > number3)) {
			System.out.println("number 2 is the largest number");
