I have an assignment for my class that asks to modify my previous assignment to include a function for both A and B. The function for A should have the quantity of numbers passed in as a parameter and needs to return the largest number. The function for B should have no parameters and return the smallest number.

Here is some pseudo-code for your greatest function:

```
int Greatest(int count)
{
// Initialize final result variable to largest number possible
//
// start a loop, increment from 0 to count
// Read next number
// Compare number to final result variable
// if number is greater than final result variable, then
// store in final result variable
// end of loop
// return final result
}// end of function greatest
//Here is what I have so far. The application seems to run well without the Void function. I am new to programming, and I am finding it difficult to handle this assignment. I am looking for a clear path of explanation in order to learn.
