# Array formed from difference of each element from the largest element in the given array

Given an array arr[], the task is to find the array formed from the difference of each element from the largest element in the given array.

Example:

Input: arr[] = {3, 6, 9, 2,6}
Output: {6, 3, 0, 7, 3}
Explanation:
Largest element of the array = 9
Therefore difference of arr[i] from 9:
Element 1: 9 – 3 = 6
Element 2: 9 – 6 = 3
Element 3: 9 – 9 = 0
Element 4: 9 – 2 = 7
Element 5: 9 – 6 = 3
Hence the output will be {6, 3, 0, 7, 3}

Input: arr[] = {7, 2, 5, 6, 3, 1, 6, 9}
Output: {2, 7, 4, 3, 6, 8, 3, 0}

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach:
Find the largest of n elements in an array and store it in a variable largest. Now check the difference between largest and the other elements in the array.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

 `// C++ program to find the array formed ` `// from the difference of each element  ` `// from the largest element in the given array ` ` `  `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` `int` `difference(``int` `arr[], ``int` `n) ` `{ ` `    ``// Initializing current largest  ` `    ``// as the first element. ` `    ``int` `largest = arr; ` `    ``int` `i; ` ` `  `    ``// For loop to compute  ` `    ``// the largest element ` `    ``for` `(i = 0; i < n; i++) { ` ` `  `        ``// Checking if the current element  ` `        ``// is greater than the defined largest ` `        ``if` `(largest < arr[i]) ` `            ``largest = arr[i]; ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// For loop to replace the elements  ` `    ``// in the array with the difference  ` `    ``for` `(i = 0; i < n; i++) ` `        ``arr[i] = largest - arr[i]; ` ` `  `    ``// For loop to print the elements ` `    ``for` `(i = 0; i < n; i++) ` `        ``cout << arr[i] << ``" "``; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `arr[] = { 10, 5, 9, 3, 2 }; ` `    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(arr) / ``sizeof``(arr); ` `    ``difference(arr, n); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `
