# Java: Find the largest element between first, last, and middle values from an array of integers

## Java Basic: Exercise-82 with Solution

Write a Java program to find the largest element between the first, last, and middle values in an array of integers (even length).

**Sample Solution:**

**Java Code:**

```
import java.util.Arrays;
public class Exercise82 {
public static void main(String[] args) {
// Define an integer array, array_nums
int[] array_nums = {20, 30, 40, 50, 67};
// Print the elements of the original array
System.out.println("Original Array: " + Arrays.toString(array_nums));
// Initialize a variable max_val with the value of the first element
int max_val = array_nums[0];
// Check if the last element is greater than max_val
if (max_val <= array_nums[array_nums.length - 1])
max_val = array_nums[array_nums.length - 1];
// Check if the middle element is greater than max_val
if (max_val <= array_nums[array_nums.length / 2])
max_val = array_nums[array_nums.length / 2];
// Print the largest element among the first, last, and middle values
System.out.println("Largest element between first, last, and middle values: " + max_val);
}
}
```

Sample Output:

Original Array: [20, 30, 40, 50, 67] Largest element between first, last, and middle values: 67

**Flowchart: **

**Java Code Editor:**

**Previous:** Write a Java program to swap the first and last elements of an array (length must be at least 1) and create a new array.

**Next:** Write a Java program to multiply corresponding elements of two arrays of integers.
