Since you give the exact steps needed we have to assume
that there is some part of this that you don't know how
to do. Which step is proving difficult?

1) use the input() function and convert the string to an integer.
2) use a loop (and the same code as in 1) to collect the numbers
in a list
3) lists have methods for sorting and reversing their contents
4) use another loop and the print() function.
