I have a list of students , every student has a grade (numeric value)
how can i order the list of those students according to their marks ,
so that the first one in the list is the one who has the highest grade
for example (let's assume that the grades are between 0 and 20)
Alex: 19
Morgan: 12
Erik: 15
Montana:13
Molko:10
Kelsie:16
the list should be lik that
Alex Kelsie Erik Montana Morgan

Problem statement is pretty straightforward. What exactly is the issue here? Can you share what you have tried so far on this?

when it comes to order numeric values it's nor a problem but
ordering names is where i found the problem
so if it is really straightforward, please show me how

Name = {'Alex';'Morgan';'Erik';'Montana';'Molko';'Kelsie'};
Marks = [19;12;15;13;10;16];
% Create a table
InputTable = table(Name, Marks)
% Sort rows of the table
SortedTable = sortrows(InputTable, 2)
Temp_List=SortedTable(:,1)
Required_List=flip(Temp_List)
As I said, It's straighforward. Hope this helps!

Providing complete solution for a homework problem is not recommended.
