    Declaring Variables for Arrays~ Newbie Question

    I just wanted to know if these are appropriate declarations
    digits is an array of 10 integers = int digits [10]
    rates is an array of 6 floats = float rates [10]

    digits is good, rates isn't.

    Code:
    int digits[10];
    double rates[6];
    But make sure you know 10 and 6 is how many, not the size.
    And that start indexing at 0.
    So you have digits[0] through digits[9].

    Code:
    //declared earlier
    
    digits[0] = 555; //First value in array gets 555
    digits[9] = 323; //Last value in array gets 323
    rates[4] = 99.99; // 5th value in rates array gets 99.99
