trigger using maps to remove nested for loops

Hello Folks ,
My scenario: under account say  i have 4 opportunities each having Opportunity.Amount__c field , i want to show show the Max value of Amount out of 4 opportunities under that account  on Account.Amount__c field.

 I  want it only using maps ,
no nested for loops please like below.

list < Account > AccList = new list < Account > ([Select id, Name, (Select id, Amount from opportunities) from Account ]);
Map<Accid,Opportunity> Opptoupdate = new Map<Accid,Opportunity>();

for( Account account : AccList) {
    for(Opportunity opportunity : account.opportunities) {
        if(opportunity.Amount == null || Opptoupdate.get(opportunity.AccountId).Amount > opportunity.Amount) {
            Opptoupdate.put(opportunity.AccountId, opportunity);

Your class should do the following
* Loop through the trigger opps and create a set of account IDs.
* Use a SQL relational query to get a list of Accounts with related opps based on the account ID set you just created:
Account[] accts = [select Id, Loan_Name__c, (select Name, Amount from Opportunities order by Amount DESC limit 1) from Account where Id in :acctIdSet];

* Loop through the account list and set your custom field to the opp name using this syntax:
for(Account acct : accts) {
    acct.Loan_Name__c = acct.Opportunities[0].Name;

Hope it helps

You can create Rollup Summary field on Account and select MAX aggregate function on Amount field. No need of code.

You can use Aggregate Result function. Trigger should be on Opportunity.
Here is a reference for Aggregate result :
set<Id> setAccountId = new set<Id>();
List<Account> accountListToUpdate = new List<Account>();

for(Opportunity opp : {
List<AggregateResult> aggregateResultList = [Select Id, Name, AccountId, Max(Amount) amt from Opportunity Where AccountId IN: setAccountId];

if(aggregateResultList != null && aggregateResultList.size() > 0) { 
	for(AggregateResult aggr: aggregateResultList){ 
		Account acc = new Account(Id = (id) aggr.get('AccountId'));
		acc.Amount__c = (decimal) aggr.get('amt');
	update accountListToUpdate;
