I am not looking for someone to do my work, I just feel like I somehow missed a part of my book, and need someone to point me in the right direction.

I am suppose to create a program that I input however many positive numbers in and after a sentinal -1 is entered the program then choices what the largest input was and displays it.
I know how to count, and use sum to accumulate.
I have no clue how to make it retain the inputs and then pick the largest..

Thank you

What you could do is input all the values into an array. Have a different variable to store the largest number, say largest_number. Once you have all the numbers ready to be checked, assign the value of the largest_number equal to the first element in the array. Now run this through a loop and compare the value of the each element in the array to largest_number. If condition satisfies, change the value of largest_number accordingly. And finally simply output it. Here is how it would sorta look like in java:

```int largest_number=numberArray[0];
for(int x=0; x<numberArray.length; x++){
if(numberArray[x]>largest_number){
largest_number = numberArray[x];```
