# How to get the second highest number from a array in C#

Learn, how to get the second highest number from a array in C# with the help of examples.

Consider, we have a following array of numbers in our code.

``int[] myArray = new int[] { 0, 1, 2, 3, 13, 8, 5 };``

Now, we need to get the second highest `8` number from a above array in C#.

To get the second highest number from a array, first we need to sort the array using the `Array.sort()` method then get the second highest number using the following index `[myArray.Length-2]`.

Here is an example:

``````using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class GetSecondHighestNumber {
static void Main() {
int[] myArray = new int[] { 0, 1, 2, 3, 13, 8, 5 };
Array.Sort(myArray);
int secondHighest = myArray[myArray.Length-2];
Console.WriteLine(secondHighest);
}
}``````

Output:

``8``

In the example above, we first sorted the array using the `Array.Sort()` method by passing the array.

The Array.sort() returns the array in ascending order, so, we can get the second highest number by using the `myArray[myArray.Length-2]`.

Similarly, we can also get the second highest number in C# by using the following `Linq` syntax.

``````using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class GetSecondHighestNumber {
static void Main() {
int[] myArray = new int[] { 0, 1, 2, 3, 13, 8, 5 };
int secondHighest = (from number in myArray
orderby number descending
select number).Skip(1).First();
Console.WriteLine(secondHighest);
}
}``````
