# Java Program for finding the largest element of the array

## Finding the Largest element of the array

Here we’ll code a Java program for finding the largest element of the array. We’ll consider an integer array and compare all the elements of the array for finding the largest element. Its a pretty simple code, let’s see an algorithm for finding the largest element of the array.  ### Algorithm for Finding the largest element of the array

• Step 1 – Initialize a variable len, for storing the length of the array.
• Step 2 – Accept the length of the array.
• Step 3 – Initialize an array.
• Step 4 – Accept the input, using for loop.
• Step 5 – Store the first element of the array in min.
• Step 6 – Initialize a variable large, for storing the largest element of the array.
• Step 7 – Compare all the elements of the array with large, and use a if condition for comparing all the array elements with large.
• Step 7 – If there’ll be any element larger than large, store it value in large.
• Step 8 – Print large.

## JAVA Program for finding the Largest number in an array

```import java.util.*;
public class first
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
System.out.print("Enter the length of the array : ");
Scanner sc=new Scanner(System.in);
int len=sc.nextInt();
int[] arr=new int;
System.out.print("Enter the elements of the array : ");
for(int i=0;i<len;i++)
{
arr[i]=sc.nextInt();
}
int large = arr;
for(int i=0;i<len;i++) { if(arr[i]>large)
{
large=arr[i];
}
}
System.out.print("The largest element of the array : "+large);
}
}```
```Output

Enter the length of the array : 5
Enter the elements of the array :
2
35
45
877
54
The largest element of the array : 877```
