Take the first number in the set and compare it against the second.

If the second is higher, take that number otherwise keep the first

Repeat with all the numbers in the set, comparing the highest found so far with the next number in the set, taking the higher of the two until all the numbers in the set have been checked. The number with which you remain will be the highest.
