# Find largest number in an array

#### Find largest number in an Array

**Problem Statement**

Design an algorithm to find maximum value among a set of N numbers.

**Solution**

**Algorithm Name:** Search Max(A, N, R).

**Input : **A is an array contains N (>=0) number of real numbers.

**Output:** R will hold the index of the first maximum value in the the array A.

**Step 1: **R = 0.

**Step 2:** i = 1.

**Step 3: **WHILE ( i< N )

IF ( A[i] > A[R] ) Then

R = i

EndIf

i = i + 1

EndWhile.

**Step 4:** Return.
