#### Exercise 76

Write a Python algorithm that determines the first index of the maximum in a given list using the max () method. __Example__ if

`L = [22, 7, 88, 41, 14, 88, 9]`

, the algorithm returns the first index of the maximum which is **2**.

#### Solution

`def indexMax (L):`

m = max (L)

index_max = L.index (m)

return index_max

# Example

L = L = [22, 7, 88, 41, 14, 88, 9]

print ("The maximum index is:", indexMax (L))

# The output of the program is: The maximum index is: 2
