Hi can anyone help me, I am learning the language C but need some help writting some code. what i need to do is from the input of the keyboard i need to find the max and min of some values and out put them. what i got so far is:

// Program to select a Maximum and Minimum from inputted numbers.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

int main ()
{


   
   int numtimes;
   int tempnum1, tempnum2, tempnum3;
   char indicator = 'y';
   


   clrscr();

   do
   {
      printf("\nEnter a number ");
      scanf(" %d", &tempnum1);

      printf("\nEnter a second number ");
      scanf(" %d", &tempnum2);

      printf("\nEnter your thrid number ");
      scanf(" %d", &tempnum3);

      printf("\nWould you like to continue? (enter n to exit) ");
      scanf(" %c",&indicator);


   }while((indicator == 'y') || (indicator == 'Y'));

  // WHAT DO I DO NOW? ANY IDEAS?


   getch();



  return 0;

}

Please select your code and click on "#" to wrap it in code tags for the forum - always!

Your first number is both the minimum and the maximum, so far, so assign those variables to it:

max = tempnum1;
min = tempnum1;

Now use an if statement to test if any later numbers that are entered, are higher or lower:

if(tempnum2 > max)
   max = tempnum2;

if(tempnum2 < min)
   min = tempnum2;

and repeat both the above if statements for each tempnumber that is entered.

If the user loops back around in the do loop, you'll be OK, still, with this logic.
