# Write a program in Go language to find the element with the maximum value in an array

Go ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

## Examples

• A1 = [2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 3, 6, 0, 1]; Maximum number is 10
• A2 = [12, 14, 16, 17, 18, 110, 13, 16, 10, 11]; Maximum number is 110

## Approach to solve this problem

Step 1: Consider the number at the 0th index as the maximum number, max_num = A

Step 2: Compare max_num with every number in the given array, while iterating.

Step 3: If a number is greater than max_num, then assign that number to max_num;

Step 4: At the end of iteration, return max_num;

## Program

Live Demo

package main
import "fmt"

func findMaxElement(arr []int) int {
max_num := arr
for i:=0; i<len(arr); i++{
if arr[i] > max_num {
max_num = arr[i]
}
}
return max_num
}

func main(){
arr := []int{2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13}
fmt.Println(findMaxElement(arr))
fmt.Println(findMaxElement([]int{2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 3, 6, 0, 1}))
fmt.Println(findMaxElement([]int{12, 14, 16, 17, 18, 110, 13, 16, 10, 11}))
}

## Output

13
10
110
