# Get the Maximum element of an Object in R Programming – max() Function

• Last Updated : 05 Jun, 2020

`max()` function in R Language is used to find the maximum element present in an object. This object can be a Vector, a list, a matrix, a data frame, etc..

Syntax: max(object, na.rm)

Parameters:
object: Vector, matrix, list, data frame, etc.
na.rm: Boolean value to remove NA element.

Example 1:

 `# R program to illustrate ``# the use of max() function`` ` `# Creating vectors``x1 <``-` `c(``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4``, ``5``, ``6``, ``7``, ``8``, ``9``)``x2 <``-` `c(``1``, ``4``, ``2``, ``8``, NA, ``11``)`` ` `# Finding Maximum element``max``(x1)``max``(x2, na.rm ``=` `FALSE)``max``(x2, na.rm ``=` `TRUE)`

Output:

``` 9
 NA
 11
```

Example 2:

 `# R program to illustrate ``# the use of max() function`` ` `# Creating a matrix``arr ``=` `array(``2``:``13``, dim ``=` `c(``2``, ``3``, ``2``)) ``print``(arr)`` ` `# Using max() function``max``(arr)`

Output:

```,, 1

[, 1] [, 2] [, 3]
[1, ]    2    4    6
[2, ]    3    5    7,, 2

[, 1] [, 2] [, 3]
[1, ]    8   10   12
[2, ]    9   11   13
