maximum, minimum and average of a matrix?

std::vector<std::vector<unsigned long> > matrix(15); // 15 rows

typedef std::vector<std::vector<unsigned long> >::iterator it_type;

it_type row = matrix.begin();

for (int w=0;w<10;w++)

{

//some lines of code

unsigned long num = x.to_ulong();

cout <<"Decimal form is: " << num<< end;

// if we've hit 15 items in the current row (i.e. 15 columns), then shift to the next row

if (row->size() == 15)

++row;

// add this to the next column in the current row

row->push_back(num);

}

// resize the last row

row->resize(15); // this will ensure that there are 15 columns in the last row

for(size_t i=0; i < matrix.size(); ++i)

{

for(size_t j=0; j < matrix[i].size(); ++j)

cout << matrix[i][j] << " ";

cout << endl;

}

Now I want to find maximum, minimum and average of this matrix. What shall I do?

Iterate through the elements of the matrix and compare each against a reference value and if necessary update the reference value.

how? can you explain a little?

Can you find maximum, minimum and average of the elements being in a plain integer array?
