findMax

# Definition

In order to find the location of the largest value of an unsorted array, you need to use the findMax method.

# Algorithm

1. Assume the zeroth value of the array is the maximum.

2. Proceed through the array, checking if any value is less than the already assumed.

3. If a value less than the assumed is found, assume that location to be the new maximum.

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until you reach the end of the array.

# Code

```
public static int findMax(int[] x, int start){
int max = start;
for(int i = start + 1; i < x.length; i++){
if (x[i] > x[max]){
max = i;
}
}
return max;
}
```
