When I Cut & paste I get an error message in the final line:

"An operator (e.g. +,-,*,...) is expected here.

If ( ValueCount ( rest ) ; MaxValue { the cursor is here}( rest ; high ) ; high )
)

Hi Michael,

that's because you did not cut all of it and you have missed the final closing bracket.
Please use the Select All button and then copy/paste.
