#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
//finding largest integer
int largest(int arr[], int n){
   int i;
   int max = arr[0];
   //traversing other elements
   for (i = 1; i < n; i++)
   if (arr[i] > max)
      max = arr[i];
   return max;
int main(){
   int arr[] = {10, 324, 45, 90, 9808};
   int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
   cout << "Largest in given array is " << largest(arr, n);
   return 0;


Largest in given array is 9808
