## R max()

R max() function is used to find the maximum value among given arguments.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to use max() function to compute the maximum of given values.

### Syntax

The syntax of `max()` function is

`max(..., na.rm = FALSE)`

where

• `...` are the values of which we have to find the maximum.
• `na.rm` [optional] is a logical value indicating whether missing values should be removed.

### Examples

In the following program, we will find the maximum of three numbers.

example.R

```x <- 16
y <- 25
z <- 9
result <- max(x, y, z)
cat("Maximum value is :", result)```

Output

`Maximum value is : 25`

Now, let us take an array of numbers, and find the maximum of this array.

example.R

```x <- array(c(1, 6, 19), dim=c(3,1))
result <- max(x)
cat("Maximum value is :", result)```

Output

`Maximum value is : 19`

If no argument is provided to max() function, then it returns negative Infinity, along with a warning message.

example.R

```result <- max()
cat("Maximum value is :", result)```

Output

```Warning message:
In max() : no non-missing arguments to max; returning -Inf
Maximum value is : -Inf```

### Conclusion

In this R Tutorial, we learned how to find the maximum value of given arguments using `max()` function, with the help of examples.
