Find the largest number in a list of integers

This puzzle asks you to write a function that takes in a list of integers and outputs the largest number in the list.


Given a list of integers, write a function to find the largest number in the list.
Input: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
Output: 5

def find_largest(list):
    largest = list[0]
    for i in list:
        if i > largest:
            largest = i
    return largest

print(find_largest([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]))

A.I. Evaluation of the Solution

The candidate's solution correctly finds the largest number in the list. The candidate uses a for loop to iterate through the list and compare each number to the current largest number. If the number is larger, it becomes the new largest number. This is a good approach as it iterates through the entire list only once.
