Find The Largest Number

In this example, we will receive a two-dimensional array of numbers as input and the JavaScript function will find the largest in each sub-array and return the result in a new array.

The program takes following steps to compute the results:

  • Receive an array with many sub-arrays.
  • Set a maximum number variable.
  • Loop through each sub-array,compare it with maximum and if the array number greater than maximum then get that array number as new maximum.
  • Push the new maximum from the sub-array into a new result array.
  • Repeat the above two steps for all sub-arrays.
  • Display the resultant new array which contains maximum from all sub-arrays.

For example,

Suppose our array is following

[[17, 23, 25, 12], [25, 7, 34, 48], [4, -10, 18, 21], [-72, -3, -17, -10]]

Each of the sub-array has maximum and we will collect them in a new array. The result is as follows.

[25, 48, 21, -3]

       var maxNumber = -20;
       var result = [];
       for(let i = 0;i< arr.length;i++){
         for(let j = 0; j < arr[i].length;j++){
      
            if (arr[i][j] > maxNumber){
                maxNumber = arr[i][j];
              }
          }
        result.push(maxNumber);
        maxNumber = -20;
        }
        document.getElementById("out").innerHTML = result;
      }
  </script>
</body>
</html>

Note that we did not receive input from a HTML control, but directly assigned it to a variable. The output is display in the browser though.
