# C++ Program to Find maximum element of each row in a matrix

• Last Updated : 20 Jan, 2022

Given a matrix, the task is to find the maximum element of each row.
Examples:

```Input :  [1, 2, 3]
[1, 4, 9]
[76, 34, 21]

Output :
3
9
76

Input : [1, 2, 3, 21]
[12, 1, 65, 9]
[1, 56, 34, 2]
Output :
21
65
56```

Approach : Approach is very simple. The idea is to run the loop for no_of_rows. Check each element inside the row and find for the maximum element. Finally, print the element.

Below is the implementation :

## C++

 `// C++ program to find maximum ``// element of each row in a matrix``#include``using` `namespace` `std;``const` `int` `N = 4; `` ` ` ` `    ``// Print array element``    ``void` `printArray(``int` `result[], ``int` `no_of_rows) {``        ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < no_of_rows; i++) {``            ``cout<< result[i]<<"``";``        ``}`` ` `    ``}`` ` `    ``// Function to get max element``    ``void` `maxelement(``int` `no_of_rows, ``int` `arr[][N]) {``        ``int` `i = 0;``         ` `        ``// Initialize max to 0 at beginning``        ``// of finding max element of each row``        ``int` `max = 0;``        ``int` `result[no_of_rows];``        ``while` `(i < no_of_rows) {``            ``for` `(``int` `j = 0; j < N; j++) {``                ``if` `(arr[i][j] > max) {``                    ``max = arr[i][j];``                ``}``            ``}``            ``result[i] = max;``            ``max = 0;``            ``i++;`` ` `        ``}``        ``printArray(result,no_of_rows);`` ` `    ``}`` ` `    ``// Driver code``    ``int` `main()``    ``{``        ``int` `arr[][N] = { {3, 4, 1, 8},``                        ``{1, 4, 9, 11},``                        ``{76, 34, 21, 1},``                        ``{2, 1, 4, 5} };``    ``// Calling the function ``        ``maxelement(4, arr);``    ``}`` ` `// This code is contributed by Rajput-Ji`

Output :

```8
11
76
5```
