I am trying to figure out why my letterGrades and highest function aren't working.....I'm more clueless on the letterGrade portion, as I believe that my highest function is a simple fix that I'm just not seeing.

With the letterGrade function I am trying to assign a letter grade to each students avg.

With the highest value, I am trying to find the highest value of each test.

This is what I'm thinking of using for the largest value:

``````double highest(student arr[], int cnt, int i)
{
double max = arr[0].gr[0];

for (int j=0;j<cnt;j++)
if (arr[j].gr[i] > max)
max = arr[j].gr[i];

return max;
}``````

Your highest function should return an INT, and that int should be
the index of the highest element in that array. Change that first.

Next, your highest function is almost correct, except that your max should be the index to the highest value, and your if statement should check every element against the array content of the max value.
So it should be something like this :
//returns the index to the highest element in arr

``````int highest(student arr[], int cnt, int i)
{
int max = 0;

for (int j=0;j<cnt;j++){
if (arr[j].gr[i] > arr[max].gr[i])
max = j;
}

return max;
}``````
