    You can't "delete" members of arrays. You just have to copy everything past that point, back one.

    1,2,3,4,5
    delete(3)
    1,2,4 <- 4,5 move the four left one
    1,2,4 <- 5,5 move the five left one
    1,2,4,5,5 figure out what you want done with the extra five

    You cannot actually just delete array members.

    No. You post your attempt, and we'll help you correct it. I've explained the logic, you give it a try. Hint: Use a loop.
