# Algorithm for the classification of scores

I have a array T[1..N] of integer (Delphi XE2)
It contains the scores obtained by players (player 1 => T[1], etc...)
I need to have the final classification of them in array C[1..N] of integer;
So if player p has the highest score, C[p] value is 1 (first) etc...
In case of several same score, then same classification
Exampe T = (1,30,2,1,15,6,15)
C = (5,1,5,2,4,2)
What is the "best" code to achieve this ?

Did you mean:
Example T = (1, 30, 2, 1, 15, 6, 15)  ==>  C = (6 ,1 ,5 ,6 ,2 ,4 , 2)

If so, then you just have to sort    ( 1, T[1]), (2, T[2],  ... (n, T[n])    max to min by the second element and output the first element in new order resolving ties.

Well, problem raises when several scores are identical ...
In my example (you corrected it, thanks), score 15 is twice the second

I think I found by myself 8
``````  for I := 1 to N do C[I] := 1;
for I := 1 to N do
for K  := (I + 1) to N do
begin
if (T[I] < T[K])
then C[I] := C[I] + 1
else if (T[I] > T[K])
then C[K] := C[K] + 1;
end;
``````
