# Return Largest Numbers in Arrays

Return an array consisting of the largest number from each provided sub-array. For simplicity, the provided array will contain exactly 4 sub-arrays.

Remember, you can iterate through an array with a simple for loop, and access each member with array syntax `arr[i]`.

function largestOfFour(arr) {
return arr;
}
largestOfFour([[17, 23, 25, 12], [25, 7, 34, 48], [4, -10, 18, 21], [-72, -3, -17, -10]]).

Someon help, I’m having an issue with finding the largest number among the negative values in the subarray.

``````[-72, -3, -17, -1]
And in particular, one value in that array: `-72`. When we first encounter that array, and its first value, what can we say definitely about that one value in comparison to any other we’ve encountered so far?
So what about this? Rather than start with some value that isn’t even in the array (we could, for example, start each array comparing to `-Infinity`, the least possible integer), why not start by setting our first value as our max value, and start comparing from the second one?
