# Python Program to Find Largest Item in a Tuple

Write a Python Program to Find the Largest or Maximum Item in a Tuple. Here, we use the Tuple max function to return the largest Tuple item.

```# Tuple Max Item

mxTuple = (3, 78, 67, 34, 88, 11, 23, 19)
print("Tuple Items = ", mxTuple)

print("Largest Item in mxTuple Tuple = ", max(mxTuple))```

## Python Program to Find Largest Item in a Tuple.

We used the Tuple sorted function (sorted(mxTuple)) to sort the Tuple in ascending order. Next, we are printing the last index position item, which is the largest.

```# Tuple Max Item

mxTuple = (2, 14, 11, 19, 25, 17, 33, 22, 30)
print("Tuple Items = ", mxTuple)

mxTuple = sorted(mxTuple)
print("Largest Item in mxTuple Tuple = ", mxTuple[len(mxTuple) - 1])```
``````Tuple Items =  (2, 14, 11, 19, 25, 17, 33, 22, 30)
Largest Item in mxTuple Tuple =  33``````

In this Python example, we assigned the Tuple first value as the largest (tupLargest = mxTuple[0]), and the for loop range starts at one and traverses to mxTuple length. The if condition (if(tupLargest < mxTuple[I])) examines whether the current Tuple item is greater than the largest. If True, assign that Tuple value to the largest and the index value to the tupLargestPos variable.

```# Tuple Max Item

mxTuple = (25, 17, 19, 33, 55, 22, 40, 30, 50, 29)
print("Tuple Items = ", mxTuple)

tupLargest = mxTuple[0]
for i in range(1, len(mxTuple)):
if(tupLargest < mxTuple[i]):
tupLargest = mxTuple[i]
tupLargestPos = i

print("Largest Item in mxTuple Tuple     = ", tupLargest)
print("Largest Tuple Item index Position = ", tupLargestPos)```
``````Tuple Items =  (25, 17, 19, 33, 55, 22, 40, 30, 50, 29)
Largest Item in mxTuple Tuple     =  55
Largest Tuple Item index Position =  4``````

Python Program to Print the Tuples Largest Number using Functions.

```# Tuple Max Item

def tupleLargest(mxTuple):
tupLargest = mxTuple[0]
for i in mxTuple:
if(tupLargest < i):
tupLargest = i
return tupLargest

mxTuple = (19, 25, 77, 56, 89, 45, 55, 12)
print("Tuple Items = ", mxTuple)

lar = tupleLargest(mxTuple)
print("Largest Item in mxTuple Tuple = ", lar)```
``````Tuple Items =  (19, 25, 77, 56, 89, 45, 55, 12)
Largest Item in mxTuple Tuple =  89``````
