    Calculating the Median

    Hi

    im now trying to work on calculating the mean, were by the array is arranged into size order, and the the median is printed out, i am having problems with the code, the cmd.exe flashes open then shut again, i am not recieving any errors, any ideas. im using visual studio C++ 2010

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #define Size 11
    int main()
    {
    float median[]={13, 36, 16, 21, 24, 16, 21, 10, 18, 16};
    int x;
    int y;
    float temp;
    int stop;
    
    
    for(x=0; x<Size; x++)
    	{
    		for(y=x+1; y<Size; y++)
    		{
    			if(median[y]>median[x])
    			{
    				temp=median[x];
    				median[x] = median[y];
    				median[y] = temp;
    			}
    		}
    	}
    
    
    	if(Size%2==0)
    	return printf("%f\n",(median[Size/2]+median[Size/2-1])/2);
    	else
    	return printf("%f\n",median[Size/2]);		
    }

    By default, Visual Studio C++ 2010 should pause the console window for you. Besides changing whatever setting is required, read: Pause console.

    I get maybe two dozen requests for help with some sort of programming or design problem every day. Most have more sense than to send me hundreds of lines of code. If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
