# C program to find the largest element in an array

## Algorithm

Input: Input size of the array and elements of the array
output: Displays the largest element in an array

1. Start
2. Input the size of array say n and enter the elements of the array a[n]
3. large = a[0]
4. i = 0
5. while ( i<n )
5.1 if large < a[ i ]
5.1.1 large = a [ i ]
5.2 i++
6. print " The largest elements in the array is " large
7. stop

## C Program

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
int n,large;
printf("Enter the size of array: ");
scanf("%d", &n);
int a[n];
printf("Enter the elements one by one\n");
for (int i = 0; i<n; i++) {
scanf("%d", &a[i]);
}
large = a [0];
for (int i = 0; i<n; i++) {
if ( large < a [ i ]) {
large = a [ i ];
} }
printf("The largest element in the array is %d \n", large);
}
