Finding Mode Median and Mean
I have to turn this code in tomorrow by 4:00. It will not run right. I found out it is not even going through the sort loop and I can't figure it out. Please, can anyone help me out?
Problem: Write a program to compute the arithmetic mean (average) median, and mode for up to 50 test scores. The data are contained in a text file.
Code:

```#include <stdio.h> #include<math.h> #define NULL 0 FILE *scoresFile; int scores[50]; /*Function Definitions*/ int readFile                (int); void calculateMean        (int); void sort                        (int); void calculateMedian(int); void calculateMode        (); main() {   int numberOfScores = 0; numberOfScores = readFile(numberOfScores); calculateMean(numberOfScores); sort(50); calculateMedian(numberOfScores); calculateMode(); } /*Read the file with scores*/ //*************************read file********************* int readFile        (int numberOfScores)         {         /*bool flag = TRUE;*/                 scoresFile = fopen("scores.txt","r");                 if(scoresFile == NULL)         {         printf("\nERROR-cannot open the file\n");         }                 /*loop to read scores from file*/         /*read each entry from file*/                 while ( fscanf(scoresFile, "%d", &scores[numberOfScores]) != EOF && numberOfScores < 50)                 {                         printf("\n%d",scores[numberOfScores]);                         numberOfScores++;                                         if(numberOfScores > 50)                                 {                                 printf("\nERROR-More than 50 scores available");                                 }                 }         fclose(scoresFile);         return numberOfScores;         } /*===============================================================*/ void calculateMean( int numberOfScores) { int i, total; int mean; total = 0; printf("\n%d",numberOfScores); for(i = 0; i <= numberOfScores; i++) { total += scores[i]; printf("\n%d",total); } mean = total/numberOfScores; printf("\nMean of the Scores:  %d" , mean); } /*================================================================*/ void sort(int array_size) {         int i, j, temp, x;         for (i = array_size-1; i>= 0; i-- )                 {                         for (j=1; j<= i; j++)                         {                                 if(scores[j-1] > scores[j])                                 {                                         temp = scores[j-1];                                         scores[j-1] = scores[1];                                         scores[1] = temp;                                 }                                                 }                 }                 printf("\n\n\n");         for (x=0;x <= 20; x++){         printf("\n%d",scores[x]);         } } /*================================================================*/ void calculateMedian(int numberOfScores) { float median; median = (scores[numberOfScores/2 - 1 ] + scores[numberOfScores/2])/2; printf("\nMedian:  %f", median); } /*================================================================*/ void calculateMode() { int multi[50][2]; int j, k; int higher; int score; /*initialize the array second element to 0*/ for(k=0; k<50; k++) { multi[k][0] = 0; multi[k][1] = 0; } /*pass the original array and store array into multidimensional if there are no entries for that value*/ for(j=0; j<50; j++) { score = scores[j]; for(k = 0; k< 50; k++) { if(score == multi[k][0])         {         multi[k][1] = multi[k][1] + 1;         } } } higher = multi[0][1]; for(j=0; j<50; j++)         {         if(higher , multi[j][1])         higher= multi[j][1];         }                 printf("\nMode of the scores:  %d", higher);         }```

Code Tags
I am posting this because you did not use code tags on this thread. In the furture please use Code Tags. They make your code MUCH easier to read and people will be much more likely to help you if you do. And they'll be happier about helping you ;)

For example:

Without code tags:

for(int i=0;i<5;i++)
{
cout << "No code tags are bad";
}

With Code Tags:
Code:

```for(int i=0;i<5;i++) {     cout << "This code is easy to read"; }```
This is of course a basic example...more complicated code is even easier to read with code tags than without.

I've added code tags for you this time. They can be added by putting [code] at the beginning of your code and [/code] at the end. More information on code tags may be found on the code tag post at the top of every forum. I also suggest you take a look at the board guildlines if you have not done so already.

This is a common first post mistake, just remember to use [code] tags in the future and you'll get much more help.

If this is your first time posting here the welcome, and if there's anything I can do or any questions I can answer about these forums, or anything else, please feel free and welcome to PM me.

Code:

```temp = scores[j-1]; scores[j-1] = scores[1]; scores[1] = temp;```
Are you sure you don't want this to be:

Code:

```temp = scores[j-1]; scores[j-1] = scores[j]; scores[j] = temp;```

Code tags fixed by Hammer :rolleyes:

Sorry! thanks for the tip. Yea I am new. Didn't know what tags were.
