When the user enters in 5 numbers, hwo do i get it to display the lowest and highest to the screen. I have to write 3 programs. 1 to display the lowest, 1 to display the highest and 1 to display both. Thanks for the help guys.

first you would set a high and low variable
 code: var high:int:=-9999 var low:int:=9999

you use it like that because you are comparing the high to the numbers they have entered... so thats what you do next
 code: if(num > high)then high:=num

you do the same for the low... so
 code: if(num < low)then low:=num end if

then you put it in a loop to do it to every number...

delta wrote this for you in one of your other posts... you would just add in the high as well... so..
 code: var low:int:=9999 var high:int:=-9999 var num:int for i : 1.. 6     put "Enter in a number"     get num     if (num < low)then         low := num     eslif(num>high)then         high:=num     end if     cls end for put "The Lowest number is: ",low put "The highest number is: ",high
