    Turing to C Programming

    I have to change this code from Turing to C language but I'm not sure how.

    Code:
    var a : array 1 .. 10 of intvar n, x, sum, offer : int
    var avg : real
    
    
    a (1) := 100
    a (2) := 500
    a (3) := 1000
    a (4) := 5000
    a (5) := 10000
    a (6) := 25000
    a (7) := 50000
    a (8) := 100000
    a (9) := 500000
    a (10) := 1000000
    
    
    get n
    for i : 1 .. n
        get x
        a (x) := 0
    end for
    sum := 0
    for i : 1 .. 10
        sum := sum + a (i)
    end for
    avg := sum / (10 - n)
    get offer
    if offer > avg then
        put "deal"
    else
        put "no deal"
    end if

    I can easily translate most of the program except for this part. I know its a loop, but how would you change this? :

    Code:
    get n
    for i : 1 .. n
        get x
        a (x) := 0
    end for
    sum := 0
    for i : 1 .. 10
        sum := sum + a (i)
    end for
    avg := sum / (10 - n)
    Help please?

    EDIT: Alright I somewhat figured this. The first loop is to check how many inputs are left. There are 11 inputs available in total. For ex, if a user enter 2 in the beginning, there are 10 inputs left to be taken from the user. Is there a way to program this command using a loop?

    Just look at a normal for loop:

    Code:
    for (initialization; condition; increment) {
        statements;
    }

    No but what I don't understand is where "i" came from, and the semi colon, along with ".."


    Sorry, I am somewhat a beginner at this

    I'm not familiar with the language, but I'm guessing it's one of these situations:

    Code:
    #include <stdint.h>
    
    /* ... */
    
    uint8_t i;
    
    for (i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
        /* your stuff */
    }
