    Sorting list

    I am currently working on a sorting list and I want to find the min, half and max from the sorted list. I have already sorted the list as follows:

    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    	const int arraySize = 7;
    	int a[arraySize] = {7, 77, 2, 4, 1, 9, 3};
    	int i, hold;
    	for (i=0; i<arraySize;++i)
    	for (int pass = 0; pass < arraySize-1; ++pass)
    		for (i=0; i<arraySize-1;++i)
    			if (a[i] > a[i+1])
    				hold = a[i];
    				a[i] = a[i+1];
    				a[i+1] = hold;
    	for (i=0; i<arraySize; ++i)
    		cout <<left
                 << setw(2) << a[i];
    	cout << endl;
            return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    The final output should be: 1 4 77
    Can somebody help me to find the min, half and max. Thankyou
    You can't guard me 1 on 1!

    You are sorting in ascending order.
    The minimum is the first element, the maximum is the last element, and the median is the (first+last)/2 element (or thereabouts, since you have to account for array indices starting from 0 and the array possibly having an even number of elements, in which case you may take the mean of the two middle elements).

    I get maybe two dozen requests for help with some sort of programming or design problem every day. Most have more sense than to send me hundreds of lines of code. If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    i've done the question, so i'll give u a hint on how i did it (using bubble sort

        while(i != length-1 )
           if(list[i] > list[i+1])
                temp = list[i+1];
                  list[i+1] = list[i];
                  list[i] = temp;
    	min = list[0];
    	max = list[length - 1];
    	half = list[length/2];
