Flowchart for Finding the Largest Number in an Unsorted List of Numbers

Finding the Largest Number in an Unsorted List of Numbers

This flowchart shows the computer algorithm for finding the largest number in a list of numbers. Basically it gets the first number in the list and assumes it is the largest. It is put into the "largest" variable. Then it looks at each number in the list. If the number it is looking at is larger, it becomes the largest. There are N numbers so i goes from 0 to N-1. In the end, the variable "largest" holds the largest number.

Computer algorithms are written without referencing a specific language. They should be clear enough so that their implementation in any language is not difficult.
