Drop lowest value from Array and Resize array - VB 2003
My goal is to to reaverage the grades after the lowest has been dropped. I am working with a five element array. I would like to find the lowest value in the array and remove it from the array then resize the array with the elements that remain.
Since I have sorted the array, I know that I would like to remove the first element in the array since it is the lowest. Below is the code that I have tried but cannot get it to work.
Thanks for your help!
For i As Integer = 1 To 5
Console.WriteLine("Enter grade: " & i)
grades(i) = Console.ReadLine
sum = grades(i) + sum
average = sum / UBound(grades)
' i was using this code to replace the first element with nothing
'then reaverage the grade with only 4 grades instead of five
grades(1) = Nothing
newAverage = sum / UBound(grades) - 1
Is this a homework assignment?
This looks like something I did when I was learning to program! ;-)
What are you getting for the value @ DropLowest()?
Why not simply subtract the value of the lowest grade from sum, then divide sum / (UBound(grades) - 1) ?
Please post questions to the forums, where others may benefit.
I do not offer free assistance by e-mail. Thank you!
Thanks for the replies. Yes it is for an assignment for one of my classes. It was added in to the assignment, if we wanted to do it. The value i get from the dropLowest() is not what i get when i manually add the 4 grades and divide by 4.
Thanks Phil I will try that approach!!
