Calculate Average with number analysis

1. What is the problem? Please be detailed.

  • I have a question that contains 10 integer variables, I need to do a calculation that excludes the largest number and the smallest number among these 10 variables and take the average of the remaining 8. I was only able to find the calculation of the average of all variables, but first I have to exclude the largest and smallest values ​​entered by the user.

two. What steps can we take to reproduce this issue?
-create 10 entries with an integer variable and display the average in another grade-type question

3. What have you tried to resolve the issue?

  • I managed this part which is taking the average of the 10 variables.
    (${firstReading}+${secondReading}+${thirdReading}+${fourthReading}+${fifthReading}+${sixthReading}+${seventhReading}+${eighthReading}+${ninthReading}+${tenthReading} ) division 10

I would really like to thank you for sharing your knowledge, it was very useful to me, it will help me a lot with what I need.
