20-Oct-2022

. Hi Dev,

In this short tutorial we will cover an Python Program to Find Largest of n Number in a list. I’m going to show you about Largest among N numbers. you will learn Python: Get the largest number from a list. let’s discuss about write a python program to print the largest of n numbers. So, let's follow few step to create example of Maximum N numbers in Python.

The objective of this Python post, you will see various Python programs that cover the following:

let's see below simple example with output:

Example 1: Python program to find largest of n numbers using max

```lst = []

num = int(input('How many numbers: '))

for n in range(num):
numbers = int(input('Enter number '))
lst.append(numbers)

print("Maximum element in the list is :", max(lst))
```

Output:

```How many numbers:  5
Enter number  8
Enter number  13
Enter number  18
Enter number  21
Enter number  5
Maximum element in the list is : 21
```

Example 2: Python program to find largest of n numbers without using built-in function

```def find_max( list ):
max = list[ 0 ]
for a in list:
if a > max:
max = a
return max

num = int(input('How many numbers: '))

lst = []

for n in range(num):
numbers = int(input('Enter number '))
lst.append(numbers)

print("Maximum element in the list is :", find_max(lst))
```

Output:

```How many numbers:  3
Enter number  5
Enter number  9
Enter number  4
Maximum element in the list is : 9
```
