# PHP Exercises: Find the maximum sum of a contiguous subsequence from a given sequence of numbers a1, a2, a3, ... an

## PHP: Exercise-57 with Solution

Write a PHP 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.

**Pictorial Presentation: **

**Sample Solution: **

**PHP Code:**

```
<?php
// Loop to read input until a line with '0' is encountered
while ($line = fgets(STDIN)) {
// Convert the input to an integer
$n = intval($line);
// Check if the value of $n is 0, and break the loop if true
if ($n == 0) {
break;
}
// Initialize arrays to store cumulative sums and maximum values
$arr = array();
$max_val = array();
// Loop through each input value
for ($i = 0; $i < $n; $i++) {
// Read the next integer from standard input
$x = intval(fgets(STDIN));
// Initialize values for the current iteration
$arr[$i] = 0;
$max_val[$i] = -1000000;
// Loop through the array to update cumulative sums and find maximum values
for ($j = 0; $j <= $i; $j++) {
// Update cumulative sum
$arr[$j] += $x;
// Update maximum value if the current cumulative sum is greater
if ($max_val[$j] < $arr[$j]) {
$max_val[$j] = $arr[$j];
}
}
}
// Output the maximum value among the calculated maximum values
echo max($max_val) . "\n";
}
?>
```

**Previous:** Write a PHP 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:** Write a PHP program to test the specified Circumference of C1 and C2 intersect.
