### using arrays

I need some help with the output of my program and using arrays.
Here's the problem:

★★★★ Modify the program so that it outputs a list in order of number of pancakes eaten of all 10 people.
i.e.
Person 4: ate 10 pancakes
Person 3: ate 7 pancakes
Person 8: ate 4 pancakes
...
Person 5: ate 0 pancakes

I can't figure out how to use an array to display the person and the largest number in descending order. I'm almost positive that I have to use the same array in a for loop in conjunction with itself to get the people, but I'm stuck after that.

I've tried nesting a for loop within the for loop but that ended horribly.

Here's the code so far:
 ``123456789101112131415161718192021222324252627`` ``````#include using namespace std; double panAverage(double avg, int total){ // calculates average of pancakes eaten double average = 0; average = total / avg; return average; } int main() { const int avg = 10; int pancakes[10], total = 0, average, max1 = 0, num = 0, max2; for(int i = 1; i <= 10; i++){ cout << "How many pancakes did person [" << i << "] eat? "; cin >> pancakes[num]; total += pancakes[num]; // gets total of pancakes if (pancakes[num] > max1) // gets max pancakes max1 = pancakes[num]; // I think using something like pancakes[i] would work to get the people but I'm not sure what to do next } cout << "There were a total of " << total << " pancakes eaten\n"; cout << "The average number of pancakes eaten was " << panAverage(avg, total) << endl; cout << "The most pancakes that anyone ate was " << max1; return 0; }``````

Thanks for the help.
Why does pancakes have room for 10 int if you only use the first one?
I'll be honest, I don't quite understand. I was under the impression that the array pancakes can have no more than 10 integers...therefore [num] cannot count past 10.
num is 0 for the entire program.

 ``1234567891011121314151617`` ``````#include int main() { const unsigned nPeople = 10 ; unsigned pancakes[nPeople] ; for ( unsigned i=0; i> pancakes[i] ; } for ( unsigned i=0; i
