# How to find max and min element of array in C++

In this article, we will learn How to find max and min element of array in C++. We will iterate on a C++ array and try to find the maximum and minimum elements in the array.

### Explanation:How to find max and min element of array in C++

• We first accept the size of the array from the user.
• Next, we will ask the user to enter the elements as per the size given.
• We assume the first elements of the array is MaxElement and MinElement. This is just an assumption.
• Next, we will apply the logic to find the actual maximum and minimum elements in the array.
• To find the maximum element we will compare each element with our assumed maximum element and update it if a higher value is found.
• To find the minimum element we will compare each element with our assumed minimum element and update it if a lower value is found.

```#define MAX_SIZE 250

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
int Array[MAX_SIZE];
int Size;
int MaxElement, MinElement;

cout<<"Please enter Size of the array (Max 250): ";
cin>>Size;

cout<<"Please enter elements in array: ";
for(int i=0; i<Size; i++)
{
cin>>Array[i];
}

MaxElement = Array;
MinElement = Array;

for(int i=1; i<Size; i++)
{
if(Array[i] > MaxElement)
{
MaxElement = Array[i];
}

if(Array[i] < MinElement)
{
MinElement = Array[i];
}
}

cout<<"The Maximum element in the Array is: "<<MaxElement<<endl;
cout<<"The Minimum element in the Array is: "<<MinElement<<endl;
return 0;
}
```

Output

```Please enter Size of the array (Max 250): 9
Please enter elements in array: 12
13
14
50
60
70
100
90
30
20
The Maximum element in the Array is: 100
The Minimum element in the Array is: 12
