### Calculating the maximum and minimum element of Array in C

This program illustrates the concept of One-Dimensional Array.  In this program some elements are taken in array and maximum and minimum element are found  out. Complete source code and Output is given here..

Source Code

//finding the maximum and minimum element of array
#include<stdio.h>
int findmax(int array[], int n){
int i, maximum;
maximum = array[0];
for(i = 0; i < n; i++){
if(maximum < array[i])
maximum = array[i];
}
return maximum;
}
int findmin(int array[], int n){
int i, minimum;
minimum = array[0];
for(i = 0; i < n; i++){
if(minimum > array[i])
minimum = array[i];
}
return minimum;
}
int main(){
int array[10]; //array declaration of maximum size 10
int max,min,n,i;
printf("Enter the no of element: ");
scanf("%d",&n);
printf("Enter the array: ");
for(i = 0; i < n; i++){
scanf("%d",&array[i]);
}
max = findmax(array, n);
min = findmin(array, n);
printf("\nThe maximum element is %d", max);
printf("\nThe minimum element is %d\n\n", min);
return 0;
}
