Suppoe we have an array with distinct elements called salary where salary[i] is the salary of ith employee. We have to find the average salary of employees excluding the minimum and maximum salary.
So, if the input is like salary = [8000,6000,2000,8500,2500,4000], then the output will be 5125.0, as the minimum and maximum salary values are 2000 and 8500, so excluding them the average salary values are [8000,6000,2500,4000] so the average is (8000 + 6000 + 2500 + 4000)/4 = 5125.
To solve this, we will follow these steps −
delete minimum of salary from salary
delete maximum of salary from salary
return sum of the salary values / number of elements in salary after removal
Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −
def solve(salary): salary.remove(min(salary)) salary.remove(max(salary)) return sum(salary)/len(salary) salary = [8000,6000,2000,8500,2500,4000] print(solve(salary))
