C PROGRAM TO FIND LARGEST / BIGGEST NUMBER IN ARRAY

#include<stdio.h>
#define MAX 25 //maximum size of array is 25

main()
{
int i,n,LargeNo,arr[MAX];

printf("*** C PROGRAMS BLOG ***");
printf("\n>>> Program to find Largest element in array <<<");
printf("\n\n Enter the size of array: ");
scanf("%d",&n); //taking size of array as input from user
printf("\n Enter the %d elements of array: \n",n);

//taking input all the elements of array using for loop
for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{
printf("\n arr[%d]:",i+1);
scanf("%d",&arr[i]);
}
LargeNo = arr[0];
for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{
if(arr[i]>LargeNo)
{
LargeNo = arr[i];
}
}
//printing the largest element in array
printf("\n The Largest Element in the Array is: %d ",LargeNo);
getch();
}

Explanation : The above program is to find the largest element in the given array of elements. Here we are using declaring the maximum size of array as 25 using #define directive .
