Application title: Final Averages for Semester
Purpose: This Windows application allows an instructor to enter 10 project scores from a course for a semester to compute one student’s average. The application displays the final average for the semester with the two lowest scores removed from the average. The eight grades in sorted order and final average are written to a text file named grades.txt stored on a USB drive (drive E:).
Program Procedures: In a Windows application, the average of a student’s grade is computed with the lowest two project scores dropped. The results are written to a text file.
Algorithms, Processing, and Conditions:
1. The user views a Windows application that displays a title, a picture of a grade book, and an InputBox function, which requests the 10 project grades.
2. The program displays the final average for the semester with the two lowest scores dropped.
3. The program saves the sorted eight grades and the final average to a text file named grades.txt stored on the USB drive (drive E:).
Notes and Restrictions: 1. The project grades should be between 0 and 100.
