    Help Please with loops displaying a certain value

    Okay this assignment is to prompt user for positive integer, compute and display the following: sum, average, and the largest input. It should terminate when a negative value is entered. Okay so I run the program, and it terminates when i plug in a negative number, but it still uses that negative as a value of 1 to add to the sum , and messes up my sum and average. Any help?

    // Assignment11Smallest.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
    //terminate if integer is not positive
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    using namespace std;
    int main (void)
    int numberofinputs,large,x;
    double sum=0,average;
    while (x>=0)
    cout<<"\n Enter Data"<<endl;
    cout<<"\n Terminate input by entering"<<"a negative number"<<endl;
    if (x>large)
    cout<<"number of inputs="<<numberofinputs<<endl;
    cout<<"sum of integers="<<sum<<endl;
    cout<<"Largest Value="<<large<<endl;

    It's not adding in the last one -- it's adding in the first one. You set x to be 1 and add it to your sum before you ask for any input.
