Homework Assignment #4, Python Programming

Finally! After years of adding unimportant sports, the IOC has finally added Shoe Tying to the Olympics. And you’ve been selected to write the software to handle the judging of this thrilling event. Since this is an “emerging” sport, there are only eight countries with a single entrant each. There are six judges for the event. The judging data is found in the text file ShoeDataFa12.txt, which will be emailed to you. The format of the file consists of 48 integers, one per line, each between 0 and 10 (inclusive). The first six data items represent the scores for contestant 1 by each of the judges. The second six data items represent the scores for contestant 2, and so on. To compute a contestant’s score, the high score and the low score are ignored and the remaining 4 scores are averaged.

Write a program that processes the text file and prints out a summary of the competition in the following style:

The scores for contestant 1 are: 6 7 3 9 6 6
The max is 9.
The min is 3.
The overall score for this contestant is: 6.25

The scores for contestant 8 are:

The gold medal goes to contestant ???. (Note: You may assume there are no ties.)
