    Collatz Conjecture

    Hey all. I am curious about this code and where the mistake is:

    Code:
    #include
    
    int main(void)
    {
    int n;
    printf("Enter a number for n: \n")
    scanf("%i",  &n)'
    f(n);
    
    
    int collat(int);
    int collat(int n)
    	{
    	int iterations =0;
    	while (n != 1) 
    	{
    	if (n%1==0)
    	{
    	n /=2
    	}
    	else
    	{
    	n = 3*n +1;
    	iterations ++;
    	}
    	}
    int(int n)
    	{
    	int count = 0;
    	int sum = 0;
    	int temp;
    	while(count < n)
    		{
    		scanf("%i", &temp);
    		sum += (collat)temp;
                                    count++;
    		printf("Average iterations= %i\n", (float)sum);
    		}
    
    	}
    return 0;
    }

    There are lots of mistakes...

    1) There are function definitions inside your main procedure.
    2) Ther are numerous syntax errors.
    3) You cannot typecast to a function name.
    4) You cannot use type names as function names
    5) You cannot create nameless functions

    You need to work with your compiler error messages and work them out one at a time.
    You should also review your book/lesson/tutorial on program structure.
