# Find max in struct array

Given a struct array of type Height, find max

struct Height{ int feet; int inches; }

**Question source :** Microsoft Interview Experience Set 127 | (On-Campus for IDC)

The idea is simple, traverse the array, and keep track of max value

value of array element(in inches) = 12*feet + inches

// CPP program to return max // in struct array #include <iostream> #include <climits> using namespace std; // struct Height // 1 feet = 12 inches struct Height { int feet; int inches; }; // return max of the array int findMax(Height arr[], int n) { int mx = INT_MIN; for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) { int temp = 12 * (arr[i].feet) + arr[i].inches; mx = max(mx, temp); } return mx; } // driver program int main() { // initialize the array Height arr[] = { { 1, 3 }, { 10, 5 }, { 6, 8 }, { 3, 7 }, { 5, 9 } }; int res = findMax(arr, 5); cout << "max :: " << res << endl; return 0; }

Output:

max :: 125
