Ruby Array Exercises: Compute the average values of a given array of except the largest and smallest values
Ruby Array: Exercise-31 with Solution
Write a Ruby program to compute the average values of a given array, except the largest and smallest values. The array length must be 3 or more.
def check_array(nums) min = nums max = nums sum = 0 nums.each do |item| sum = sum + item if(item > max) max = item elsif(item < min) min = item end end return (sum-max-min).to_f/(nums.length - 2) end print check_array([3, 4, 5, 6]),"\n" print check_array([12, 3, 7, 6]),"\n" print check_array([2, 15, 7, 2]),"\n" print check_array([2, 15, 7])
