    Sending Values and Scanning an Array

    I don't know why this isn't working PLZ need help.

    Assignment:
    Write a program which prompts the user to enter the number of values to process
    (a maximum of 100). Next prompt, and allow the user to enter each of the
    values. Store these values in an array. Print the largest value, the smallest
    value, and the average (to 2 decimal places) of the values in the array. You must
    use functions for each of these tasks. The GetValues() function is the only
    function that may change the array.

    The prototypes for the functions must be:
    void GetValues(int x[], int *pN);
    int FindBig(int x[], int n);
    int FindSml(int x[], int n);
    float FindAvg(int x[], int n);

    GetValues should put values in both the x[] array and at *pN
    FindBig should return the largest integer in the first n elements of x[]
    FindSml should return the smallest integer in the first n elements of x[]
    FindAvg should return the average of the first n elements of x[]

    A sample run is shown below (user input underlined). Note that user is prompted
    for value 1, 2, 3, ... as opposed to 0, 1, 2, ... .


    Enter number of integer values: 5
    Enter value 1: 20
    Enter value 2: -15
    Enter value 3: 90
    Enter value 4: 2
    Enter value 5: 30
    The largest value is: 90
    The smallest value is: -15
    The average value is: 25.40
    CODE

    #define _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS
    #include <stdio.h>

    void GetValues(int x[], int *pN);
    int FindBig(int x[], int n);
    int FindSml(int x[], int n);
    float FindAvg(int x[], int n);

    void main()
    {

    int a[100], myBig, mySml, n;
    float myAvg;
    GetValues(a,&n);
    myBig=FindBig(a,n);
    mySml=FindSml(a,n);
    myAvg=FindAvg(a,n);
    printf("The largest value is: %d\n",myBig);
    printf("The smallest value is: %d\n",mySml);
    printf("The average value is: %.2f\n",myAvg);

    void GetValues(int x[], int *pN);
    printf("Enter number of integer values: ");
    scanf("%d", &a[100]);

    for(a[100]=0; a[100] <= 100; a[100]++)
    {
    printf("Enter Value %d: ");
    scanf("%d", &n, &myBig, &mySml);
    int FindBig(int x[], int n);
    int FindSml(int x[], int n);
    {
    float FindAvg(int x[], int n);
    myAvg = myAvg/a[100];
    }
    }
    }

    What problems are you having?

    Does the code compile?

    If not, please post the entire error message.

    Have you written the code for these functions?

    I don't see them anywhere in the code you supplied.

    well this is my first ever program class, so im kind of confused with what im supposed to write...

    Arrays confuse me, so i don't really know what im supposed to do.

    I supplied the actual assignment, which is located on the top of the post right above the code

    You do this:

    Write a program which prompts the user to enter the number of values to process
    (a maximum of 100). Next prompt, and allow the user to enter each of the
    values. Store these values in an array
    in this function:

    Code:
    void GetValues(int x[], int *pN);


    Code:
    void GetValues(int x[], int *pN)
    {
       // Get user input for number of values here. 
    
       // insure it is less than 100 
    
       //(Store it in *pN)
    
       // Now get user input for the values. Store them in the array x[]
    
       // GetValues should put values in both the x[] array and at *pN
    
    }
    You instructions tell you what each function should look like, what it should do.

    You need to write the functions to do what the instructions say.

    Give it a try. When and if you run into trouble come on back.

    Tell us your specific problem.

    Post the modified code with the entire error messages.

    don't use void main()

    Cprogramming.com FAQ > main() / void main() / int main() / int main(void) / int main(int argc, char *argv[])

    here is the framework one should use for simple programs

    Code:
    function_1(parameters)   // function definition
    {
          // function body
    }
    
    function_2(parameters)     // function definition
    {
          // function body
    }
    
    
    int main()
    {
           //variable declarations
    
           function_1(parameters);     // function call
    
           function_2(parameters);      // function call
    
           return 0;  
    }
    if you write function definition before main(), no need for function declaration as you did. but for lengthy programs having no. of functions, writing function declaration gives idea about functions used in code.

    try it and post

    thank you
