I am trying to finding the largest number in an array c++

Every time I am trying my code is printing all the values of the array instead of the largest one. I might be doing something wrong inside my iteration. Do you have any idea to do it more easily and efficiently?

I’d love to hear from you guys. Please shar your ideas about this.

You may use a function called max_element() but there is no way to skip the iteration. Without an iteration, you can’t check all the values of an array. So, iteration is a must to do such things. Every time your program prints the values of the given array because you set the wrong condition inside the iteration.

 Please follow the code snippet below:

using namespace std; 

int largest_number(int my_arr[], int i) 
    return *max_element(my_arr, arr+i); 

int main()
    int my_arr[] = {10, 32, 45, 90, 88}; 
    int i = sizeof(my_arr)/sizeof(my_arr[0]); 
    cout << largest_number(my_arr, i); 
    return 0; 

 Keep exploring. Thanks.
