I am very new to C and have been tasked to produce a program that generates 1000 random numbers (with a max of 9) and then finds the total average. I have produced the following but it only seems to return 0 as the answer.

Any guidance would be appreciated.Code:// Program to determine the mean of 1000 random numbers // // written by Kerim Morris 01/10/2010 // #include <stdlib.h> int max_count = 1000; //declare the variables// int count = 0; int random_number = 0; int random = 0; int random_total = 0; float mean = 0; main() //start of main function// { { for (count = 0; count < max_count; count ++); //loop counter to a maximum// //of 1000 // random_number = (int)(10.0*rand()/(RAND_MAX+1.0)); //produce random// // numbers between 0-9// random_total = random_number + random_total; //calculate the running // // total// } mean = (random_total / max_count); //calculate mean of total // printf("The mean of 1000 random numbers equals %f"); }
