    I'm just using the functions we were given to use.

    Don't be afraid to create and use your own functions, functions can often be used to simplify the logic of your programs.

    Have you considered a vector or an array to help reduce the code duplication? Any time I see variables with numeric suffixes I think vectors or arrays should be considered. Also your divisions could be arrays as well. A couple more functions may be useful as well.

    Post your current code so we can possibly see what is wrong.

    Except that that code shouldn't compile without at least some warnings:


    ||=== c_homework, Debug ===|
    main.c||In function ‘main’:|
    main.c|9|error: implicit declaration of function ‘gets’ [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]|
    main.c|19|error: implicit declaration of function ‘system’ [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]|
    ||=== Build finished: 2 errors, 0 warnings (0 minutes, 0 seconds) ===|

    You should never use gets() this function is so dangerous that it has been removed from the current C standard. You should be using fgets() instead. You also need the <stdlib.h> header file if you want to use the system() function.

    And I am sorry about the code tags :'( I do not know how or where to place them when I type my program in

    You press the [ code ] button at the top of the editor window and paste the code between the tags.


    It seems that you are close at implementing the first part of the assignment. But you still have the name of the array incorrect, it should be named score, if you follow the directions.

    For the second part of the assignment you really need to show what you've tried. And ask specific questions about the parts you don't understand.

    Look at this snippet:
    	cout << "The average of the scores is " << sum / SCORE << endl;
    	for ( i = 0; i < SCORE; i++) // This is incorrect.
    	   cout << i << grade[i] << endl;
    		if ( grade[i] < 89){
    			cout << grade[i] << "A\n" ;
    		if ( 90 < grade[i] && grade[i] < 79)
    			cout << grade[i] << "B\n" ;
    		if ( 80 < grade[i] && grade[i] < 69)
    			cout << grade[i] << "C\n" ;
    		if ( 70 < grade[i] && grade[i] < 59)
    			cout << grade[i] << "D\n" ;
    		if ( 60 < grade[i] && grade[i] < -1)
    			cout << grade[i] << "F\n" ;
    		if (grade[i] < average)
    			// place *.....still figuring this part out

    The comparison part of your if statement is incorrect, you need to stop when you reach the number of actual grades you entered, not at the SIZE of the array. Your if statement testing if the grade is less than the average should be before you print out each grade. Also the testing for the "letter" could be an if/else if() chain instead of multiple if statements. And the last statement should be an else, and the grade will never be less than zero. If you work your logic correctly you only need one test for each series.

    if( x < 1)
      do something
    else if( x < 2)
      do something else.
      last chance.

    I like brocken's comment "I don't know much about coding, but it would be really easy".
    Heh.. I don't know anything about the topic, but I know it is easy.

    I know that this isn't what this site is for but many people in the pc gaming comunity have been looking for screen magnification program that would zoom in on the center of the screan rather then the cursor (turned on and off with a hotkey). Now, I am not going to lie, I don't know much about coding, but it would be really easy to make program like this one.
    I hope you will find ...

    Just stopping by to say Hello Jim. I've learned quite a few things from your posts in the c/c++ forum.
