There are a ton of ways to handle this case. I bet if you think about it a little harder you'll get it. What have you tried?

Java Code:if (n<min) { n=min; }
Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

No.
You want to change the 'min' value if 'n' is smaller.
At the moment you are changing the 'n' value.Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

Re: finding maximum,minimum and average of 10 numbers
Assignments work 'from right to left', i.e. a= b means that a gets the value of b; so in your example it should be;
Java Code:if (n < min) min= n;

Re: finding maximum,minimum and average of 10 numbers
Also (and I have to admit to only thinking of this last night)...
Java Code:int min = 0;
You should assign a really big number to 'min', and a really big negative number to 'max' (the Integer class has a couple of constants).Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
