### how do i make max/min/average score in this code?

hello

so i have this project to grade several multiple choice exams. i have done so far the following. just need to output to the data file (besides the id and score percentage) statistics of maximum score, minimum score, and average score. how do i do that?

anyone?
to find the max score you follow the pattern:

set max_score to a very low integer value.

iterate through array with for loop.

at each pass check if array element indexed by loop is greater than max.

if so set max_score to this element.

at end of iteration you should have the maximum.

minimum is same but is reverse.

to find average score you should iterate through array via for loop and sum all elements. thereafter divide sum by number of elements (6 in your case) and that will be the average.

when dividing make sure to cast to double or float so as to preserve the fractional part of value.
