C++ Exercises: Find the largest value from first, last, and middle elements of a given array of integers of odd length

C++ Basic Algorithm: Exercise-97 with Solution

Write a C++ program to find the largest value from first, last, and middle elements of a given array of integers of odd length (atleast 1).

Sample Solution:

C++ Code :

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

 static int test(int numbers[], int arr_length)
          {
            int first, middle_ele, last_ele, max_ele;

            first = numbers[0];
            middle_ele = numbers[arr_length / 2];
            last_ele = numbers[arr_length - 1];
            max_ele = first;

            if (middle_ele > max_ele)
            {
                max_ele = middle_ele;
            }

            if (last_ele > max_ele)
            {
                max_ele = last_ele;
            }

            return max_ele;
        }
               
int main() 
 {  
  int nums1[] = {1};
  int arr_length = sizeof(nums1) / sizeof(nums1[0]);	
  cout << test(nums1, arr_length) << endl; 
  int nums2[] = {1,2,9};	
  arr_length = sizeof(nums2) / sizeof(nums2[0]);
  cout << test(nums2, arr_length) << endl;
  int nums3[] = {1,2,9,3,3};	
  cout << test(nums3, arr_length) << endl;
  int nums4[] = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7};	
  arr_length = sizeof(nums4) / sizeof(nums4[0]);
  cout << test(nums4, arr_length) << endl;
  int nums5[] = {1,2,2,3,7,8,9,10,6,5,4};	
  arr_length = sizeof(nums5) / sizeof(nums5[0]);
  cout << test(nums5, arr_length) << endl;
  return 0;    
}

Sample Output:

1
9
9
7
8
