Obtaining the Max Value from an Array

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;}
