# How to find the maximum element of a Vector using STL in C++?

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this tutorial, we will be discussing a program to understand how to find the maximum element of a vector using STL in C++.

To find the maximum element from a given vector, we will be using the *max_element() method from STL library.

## Example

Live Demo

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
int main(){
//defining the vector
vector<int> a = { 1, 45, 54, 71, 76, 12 };
cout << "Vector: ";
for (int i = 0; i < a.size(); i++)
cout << a[i] << " ";
cout << endl;
//finding the maximum element
cout << "Max Element = " << *max_element(a.begin(), a.end());
return 0;
}

## Output

Vector: 1 45 54 71 76 12
Max Element = 76
