Find the Max of the list of numbers using Dr. Scheme[edit | edit source]

Create a function that finds the maximum value of a given list-of-numbers. The contract for the function is shown below. Note that this function may require the creation and use of helper functions.

Test the function (=(max−of−list (cons 1 (cons 2 (cons 3 (cons 4 empty))))) 4) max−of−list : list−of−numbers −> number ( define (max−of−list a−list−of−numbers) ... )

The function should take the list of numbers and produce only the number value for the maximum.
