Kotlin Program to Find Largest Element in an Array

In this program, you'll learn to find the largest element in an array using a for loop in Kotlin.

Example: Find largest element in an array

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
    val numArray = doubleArrayOf(23.4, -34.5, 50.0, 33.5, 55.5, 43.7, 5.7, -66.5)
    var largest = numArray[0]

    for (num in numArray) {
        if (largest < num)
            largest = num
    }

    println("Largest element = %.2f".format(largest))
}

When you run the program, the output will be:

Largest element = 55.50

In the above program, we store the first element of the array in the variable largest.

Then, largest is used to compare other elements in the array. If any number is greater than largest, largest is assigned the number.

In this way, the largest number is stored in largest when it is printed.
