## Python and javascript implementations for algorithms

Oct 9, 2021 · 7 min read

# The Problem Statement

What happens when you have a huge array? How do we frame an algorithm to solve this?

# The Solution

## Solution 2

Is there a way to solve this with a single loop?

In short, we went to each element of the array and checked if it will be part of the sub-array with the maximum sum. If it is so, we are just adding it to our maxSum variable and moving on to the next element.

# Key Takeaways

`Fundamental Approach: A summary.1. Have a single for loop.2. Calculate a currentValue for each element in the array based on the question.3. Then update the maxValue as max(maxValue, currentValue)4. Vice-versa for minValue.`
