Hello there. The correct plural of appendix depends on what the circumstance is. For example if you refer to a book or an article, either the plural appendices or appendixes is correct. If you refer to an organ for example appendixes is the only plural. I hope this helps you.
Appendices or Appendixes both are correct.

hi. Using the word appendix depends on what or how you use it as a word. It can be a part of the human body (internal organ) or it could be a part of a book. ex: 1. The right side of my stomach hurt so much. Maybe my appendix is about to explode. 2. For a more additional ideas about the topic, please see and check the appendix/appendices of the book.

Appendixes or Appendices
Appendices, a plural borrowed directly from Latin, is the usual plural, especially in scholarly writing, when referring to supplementary material at the end of a book. Appendixes is the usual plural in the anatomical meaning.
The plural will change in relation to the context of the sentence. That is, if we are speaking about the appendix found at the end of a book or article , we will say 'appendices or 'appendixes'. If we are speaking about the organ, there is no plural so it is just called 'appendixes'.
