General - Checkers longest hit algorithm.

I am currently working on a checkers game for school. Everything is going fine but I just can't seem to figure out the following:

in checkers, when one has multiple options for hitting the opponent, the player must choose the option in which the most pieces are hit. Can somebody give me some advice on how to make an algorithm that looks for the most pieces to hit?

Here is a little pseudo code I have so far:

        x=x-2; //Change co-ordinate;
        position = ((y*5)-6)+(((x+1)/2)); //formula that turns co-ordinates into an int
        postionarray[hitamount][route] = position; //saves position into a 2D array,

        if(checkhitupleft()=true){hitamount++;hitupleft();  }
        if(checkhitupright()=true){hitamount++;hitupright(  );}
        if(checkhitdownright()=true){hitamount++;hitdownri  ght();}
        if(checkfornohit()=true){route++;hitamount=0} //goes to next route and makes hit 0
        //same as other function, only doesn't call function hitupleft because we came from there.

The only problem I got is that I have to return multiple variables (`hit`, `position`, `route`) in order to make this work properly. I have looked online on how to return multiple variables out of a function, but I can't figure out how to use it for my code.
