Simple Program to enter number

Hello Everyone,

I am a student and have no clue about programming. I am tasked to do the following and need to see if someone can explain step-by-step how to write them.

1. Write a program to ask enter 5 numbers, then check which number is the biggest.

2. Write a shell script to print on the screen the odd numbers 1 3 5 7 9...99

I have no idea how to get myself started on this.

Thanks in advance

Well Question 1 would be like this Programm.

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
      int i;
      int scan = 0;
        int oldval = 0;
      for(i=0; i < 5 ;++i){
            printf("Enter %d. Value:\n", i+1);
            scanf ("%d",&scan);
            if (oldval < scan){
                  oldval = scan;
      printf("Biggest Value = %d\n", oldval);
      return 0;

You could also store every Value in an Array if you need the Values later on.

I am not sure about Question 2:
Just use a loop. I do not know much about Shell Programming. The Syntax depends on the Shell you aare using

Thanks so much for the help. I have played around with the program and studied it. It is exactly what I was looking for and studying. This definitely will help me learn more about C programming. I really really appreciate your time.

Thanks a bunch!
