# Java: Find the maximum sum of a contiguous subsequence from a given sequence of numbers

## Java Basic: Exercise-223 with Solution

Write a Java program to find the maximum sum of a contiguous subsequence from a given sequence of numbers a1, a2, a3, ... an. A subsequence of one element is also a continuous subsequence.

**Input: **

You can assume that 1 ≤ n ≤ 5000 and -100000 ≤ ai ≤ 100000.

Input numbers are separated by a space.

Input 0 to exit.

**Visual Presentation:**

**Sample Solution:**

**Java Code:**

```
// Importing necessary Java utilities for input
import java.util.*;
// Main class named "Main"
public class Main {
// Main method to execute the program
public static void main(String [] args) {
// Creating a Scanner object for user input
Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in);
// Prompting the user to specify the number of integers to input
System.out.println("How many integers would you like to input?");
int n = s.nextInt();
// Initializing variables for the maximum sum and the current accumulation
int ans = -100000;
int acc = 0;
// Prompting the user to input the integers
System.out.println("Input the integers:");
// Looping through each input integer to find the maximum contiguous subsequence sum
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
// Accumulating the current integer
acc += s.nextInt();
// Updating the maximum sum using Math.max function
ans = Math.max(ans, acc);
// Resetting the accumulation to 0 if it becomes negative
if (acc < 0) acc = 0;
}
// Outputting the maximum sum of the contiguous subsequence
System.out.println("Maximum sum of the said contiguous subsequence:");
System.out.println(ans);
}
}
```

Sample Output:

How many integers would you like to input? 5 Input the integers: 25 61 35 42 66 Maximum sum of the said contiguous subsequence: 229

**Previous:** Write a Java program to test whether two lines PQ and RS are parallel. The four points are P(x1, y1), Q(x2, y2), R(x3, y3), S(x4, y4).

**Next: **There are two circles C1 with radius r1, central coordinate (x1, y1) and C2 with radius r2 and central coordinate (x2, y2)

Write a Java program to test the followings -

"C2 is in C1" if C2 is in C1

"C1 is in C2" if C1 is in C2

"Circumference of C1 and C2 intersect" if circumference of C1 and C2 intersect, and

"C1 and C2 do not overlap" if C1 and C2 do not overlap.
