﻿ C# - Largest value of the first, last, middle of an array

# C#: Find the largest value from first, last, and middle elements of a given array of integers of odd length (at least 1)

## C# Sharp Basic Algorithm: Exercise-107 with Solution

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

Visual Presentation:

Sample Solution:-

C# Sharp Code:

``````using System; // Importing the System namespace

namespace exercises // Defining a namespace called 'exercises'
{
class Program // Defining a class named 'Program'
{
static void Main(string[] args) // The entry point of the program
{
// Outputting the result of the 'test' method with various integer arrays as arguments
Console.WriteLine(test(new[] {1}));
Console.WriteLine(test(new[] {1,2,9}));
Console.WriteLine(test(new[] {1,2,9,3,3}));
Console.WriteLine(test(new[] {1,2,3,4,5,6,7}));
Console.WriteLine(test(new[] {1,2,2,3,7,8,9,10,6,5,4}));
}

// Method to find and return the maximum value among the first, middle, and last elements of an array
static int test(int[] numbers)
{
// Variables to store the first, middle, last, and maximum elements of the input array
int first, middle_ele, last_ele, max_ele;

// Storing the values of the first, middle, and last elements in respective variables
first = numbers[0];
middle_ele = numbers[numbers.Length / 2];
last_ele = numbers[numbers.Length - 1];
max_ele = first; // Assuming the maximum element is initially the first element

// Checking if the middle element is greater than the current maximum element
if (middle_ele > max_ele)
{
max_ele = middle_ele; // Updating the maximum element if the middle element is larger
}

// Checking if the last element is greater than the current maximum element
if (last_ele > max_ele)
{
max_ele = last_ele; // Updating the maximum element if the last element is larger
}

return max_ele; // Returning the maximum element found among first, middle, and last elements
}
}
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```1
9
9
7
8```
