This program takes `n` number of element from user(where, `n` is specified by user) and stores data in an array. Then, this program displays the largest element of that array using loops.

## Example: Display Largest Element of an array

```
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main() {
int i, n;
float arr[100];
cout << "Enter total number of elements(1 to 100): ";
cin >> n;
cout << endl;
// Store number entered by the user
for(i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
cout << "Enter Number " << i + 1 << " : ";
cin >> arr[i];
}
// Loop to store largest number to arr[0]
for(i = 1;i < n; ++i) {
// Change < to > if you want to find the smallest element
if(arr[0] < arr[i])
arr[0] = arr[i];
}
cout << endl << "Largest element = " << arr[0];
return 0;
}
```

**Output**

Enter total number of elements(1 to 100): 8 Enter Number 1 : 23.4 Enter Number 2 : -34.5 Enter Number 3 : 50 Enter Number 4 : 33.5 Enter Number 5 : 55.5 Enter Number 6 : 43.7 Enter Number 7 : 5.7 Enter Number 8 : -66.5 Largest element = 55.5

This program takes `n` number of elements from user and stores it in array `arr[]`.

To find the largest element, the first two elements of array are checked and largest of these two element is placed in `arr[0]`.

Then, the first and third elements are checked and largest of these two element is placed in `arr[0]`.

This process continues until and first and last elements are checked.

After this process, the largest element of an array will be in `arr[0]` position.
