How to find the minimum and maximum element of an Array using STL in C++?

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Here we will see how to find the maximum and minimum element from an array. So if the array is like [12, 45, 74, 32, 66, 96, 21, 32, 27], then max element is 96, and min element is 12. We can use the max_element() function and min_element() function, present in algorithm.h header file to get the maximum and minimum elements respectively.

Example

 Live Demo

#include<iostream>
#include<algorithm>
using namespace std;
int main() {
   int arr[] = {12, 45, 74, 32, 66, 96, 21, 32, 27};
   int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
   cout << "Array is like: ";
   for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
      cout << arr[i] << " ";
   cout << "
Max Element is: " << *max_element(arr, arr + n);    cout << "
Min Element is: " << *min_element(arr, arr + n); }

Output

Array is like: 12 45 74 32 66 96 21 32 27
Max Element is: 96
Min Element is: 12
