C Exercises: From seven integer values find the highest value and it's position

C Basic Declarations and Expressions: Exercise-112 with Solution

Write a C program that reads seven integer values from the user and finds the highest value and its position.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include <stdio.h>

int main () {
    // Declare variables
    int x, i, n = 0, temp_num = 0, position = 0;

    // Prompt user for input
    printf("Input 6 numbers (integer values):\n");

    // Loop to read and process 6 numbers
    for (i = 1; i < 7; i++){

        // Read an integer from user and store it in 'x'
        scanf("%d", &x);

        n = x; // Assign 'x' to 'n'

        // Check if 'n' is greater than or equal to 'temp_num'
        if (n >= temp_num){
            temp_num = n; // Update 'temp_num' with the new maximum value
            position = i; // Update 'position' with the current position

    // Print the maximum value and its position
    printf("\nMaximum value: %d\n", temp_num);
    printf("Position: %d", position);

    return 0; // End of program

Sample Output:

Input 6 numbers (integer values):

Maximum value: 35
Position: 6
