Obtaining the Max Value from an Array

Question:
How can I make a function to return and display the maximum number in the following array:

int my_array[]={10,3,35,101,65,100};

Answer:
First, sort the array. Then display the last element in the sorted array:

#nclude 
#include 

using namespace std;
int main()
{
 int my_array[]={10,3,35,101,65,100};
 // obtain the number of elements 
 int elements = sizeof(my_array)/sizeof(int);
 // sort array using the sort() algorithm
 sort(my_array, my_array+elements);
 // diplay array's last element
 cout << "max: " << my_array[elements-1] << endl;
}
