    Unhappy beginning programmer needs help with a structures program!

    i need help with a program that calculates average household income, and lists the identification number and income of each household whose income exceeds the average. Also, determine the percentage of households below the poverty level using the formula P=$7500.00+$950.00x(m-2), where m is the number of members of each household. No more that 25 households were surveyed. This program uses structures. I have no idea what i am doing on this one, so any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    Well maybe you should just sit down with some pen and paper and write out things you think you will need in the program. This is usually very helpful if you aren't sure about certain aspects in the beginning. Are you completely lost or does a certain portion of the program confuse you? Try writing out some of it and I'll be glad to help you.
