how to find out the maximum and the second maximum number from an array of integers

>how to find out the maximum and the second maximum number from an array of integers

You sort them out in ascending order and then you pick the last two.

many thanks to Aia

Do you know how to sort?.

So, assuming you aren't using arrays with thousands of elements, you can use this

``````do
swap = 0;
for (int i=0;i<n-1;i++) // n- nr of elements
if (anArray[i]>anArray[i+1])
{
temp = anArray[i];
anArray[i] = anArray[i+1];
anArray[i+1] = temp;
swap = 1;
}
while (swap)``````

This is the code of the bubble sort. The biggest element will be the last in the array, so the answer to your question (is Chuck Norris :P)

``````max  = anArray[n];
max2 = anArray[n-1];``````

Here I Present The Code Mr.

``````void main()
{
int a[10],max1,max2;//Array Size=10
clrscr();
printf("Enter The Array Elements");
max1=a[0];
max2=a[0];
for(i=0;i<9;i++)
{
if(a[i]>=max1)
max1=a[i];
}
for(i=0;i<9;i++)
{
if(a[i]>=max2&&a[i]!=max1)
max2=a[i];
}
printf("%d   %d",max1,max2);

}``````
``void main()``

This is unacceptable. main returns a type int.

``clrscr();``

This is unacceptable. You did not include
the header file for it. Moreover, it makes your code not agreeable
with C standards.

``for(i=0;i<9;i++)``

You did not declare variable i.

Nevertheless, after fix it in order to compile this is the output that you
get: Enter The Array Elements2009315348 2009312941

Please, abstain of posting code that do not compile, do not work, nor help anyone.
