Pancake glutton 4 stars last step

Hello, I have been coding with c++ for about 2-3 weeks now and I have been stuck with one exercise called "Pancake glutton" I need to collect answers from 10 people how many pancakes have they ate for breakfast and output answers in order with their respective number like that:

Person 4: ate 10 pancakes
Person 3: ate 7 pancakes
Person 8: ate 4 pancakes
...
Person 5: ate 0 pancakes

I have found a way how to put out the pancake amounts in decreasing order, but I still need to find out how to associate pancake amount with persons number.

I would appreciate help. Thank you.

                    amount[b]=temp;

                }
        }
    }


    cout<<endl;

    for(int c=0;c<=9;c++){
        cout<<amount[c]<<" pancakes"<<endl; //I need to find a way to somehow tie pancake amount and persons number together
    }



}
@JustinPlusPlus you should make a struct that can hold each person and their number of cancakes.

Here is an attempt to your problem.

                              << " pancakes"<< std::endl;
	}
	std::cout << std::endl;
	return 0;
