    Cool C++ looping question oops

    Forgot to attach program.

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;

    void main()
    {
    float test,count,sum,avg,final;

    sum=0;
    count=0;
    final=0;

    while(count<=3)
    {
    sum+=test;
    count++;
    cout << "Input a test score: ";
    cin >>test;
    }

    cout <<"Now enter the final grade: ";
    cin >>final;
    final=final * 2;
    cout << "final grade weighted at: " << final << endl;
    avg = (test + final * 2)/6;
    cout << "The average is: "<< avg << endl;

    }

    Do this
    sum+=test;

    After this (not before)
    cout << "Input a test score: ";
    cin >>test;
