    Help with a program involving two variables and two arrays

    Hey guys, I'm new to C programming and I honestly have no clue how to complete this program for an assignment I've been given.

    I'm trying to write a program that is able to perform multiplication and division of two variables in two different arrays. This should be done through two ways:

    a.
    Pass the variables to the function and return the value via the return command to a variable in main.

    b. Pass a pointer to the address of the variables in the array to the function and have the function perform the multiplication and division in the array without returning anything

    There is a homework policy on this forum that states that no one can give you code, but help you with your own.

    Passing variables through functions is very fundamental to programming -> If you are trying to get "the edge" for the coarse you are doing, can I suggest that you look at C Tutorial - Learn C - Cprogramming.com in particular "Functions in C"

    For your algorithm in 'b', get a pen, paper and calculator and see if you can figure out the exact steps your take when multiplying/dividing
    Fact - Beethoven wrote his first symphony in C
