# program in C to get the largest element of an array

### Problem Statement:

Write a program in C to get the largest element of an array using the function.

Test Cases:

Input the number of elements to be stored in the array :10
Input 10 elements in the array :
element – 0 : 1
element – 1 : 2
element – 2 : 3
element – 3 : 4
element – 4 : 5

element – 5 : 6

element – 6 : 7

element – 7 : 8

element – 8 : 9

element – 9 : 10

Expected Output :

The largest element in the array is : 10

C Program:

#include<stdio.h>
#define MAX 100

int findMaxElem(int []);
int n;

int main()
{
int arr1[MAX],mxelem,i;
printf(“\n\n Function : get largest element of an array :\n”);
printf(“————————————————-\n”);

printf(” Input the number of elements to be stored in the array :”);
scanf(“%d”,&n);

printf(” Input %d elements in the array :\n”,n);
for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{
printf(” element – %d : “,i);
scanf(“%d”,&arr1[i]);
}
mxelem=findMaxElem(arr1);

printf(” The largest element in the array is : %d\n\n”,mxelem);
return 0;
}
int findMaxElem(int arr1[])
{
int i=1,mxelem;
mxelem=arr1[0];
while(i < n)
{
if(mxelem<arr1[i])
mxelem=arr1[i];
i++;
}
return mxelem;
}
