Find maximum element of each row in a matrix in C++


Consider we have a matrix, our task is to find the maximum element of each row of that matrix and print them. This task is simple. For each row, reset the max, and find the max element, and print it. Let us see the code for better understanding.

Example

#include<iostream>
#define MAX 10
using namespace std;
void largestInEachRow(int mat[][MAX], int rows, int cols) {
   for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++) {
      int max_row_element = mat[i][0];
   for (int j = 1; j < cols; j++) {
      if (mat[i][j] > max_row_element)
         max_row_element = mat[i][j];
   }
   cout << max_row_element << endl;
}
}
int main() {
   int row = 4, col = 4;
   int mat[][MAX] = { { 3, 4, 1, 81 },
      { 1, 84, 9, 11 },
      { 23, 7, 21, 1 },
      { 2, 1, 44, 5 }
   };
   largestInEachRow(mat, row, col);
}

Output

81
84
23
