    Smile Array Help.. DIFFICULT!

    Create a c++ iostream that will let the user enter 10 numbers. Determine the highest number and display the difference from the highest number to the number being entered..

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;

    int main ()
    double ave;

    cout << "Enter 10 integer numbers: ";

    for (int i=0; i<n; i++) {
    sum = sum + a[i];

    return 0;

    it's not running..

    Fix your indenting and use the code tags, put something more descripitive than "Its not running", as your problem. Nobody is a crystal ball reader here, of course mistakes we can spot by taking time to read through the posted code, but then nobody is going to be very inclinded to do that if you do not have the grace to bother posting a better description yourself.

    what is that for? And apart from anything else there is no semicolon, other parts of the code show that you need to study the basic syntax of the language amigo.

    Now, really:
    Urgent!!! Please

    Your code is horrible. Like, NOTHING is right, which is quite impressive. The only part that makes sense tries to sum ALL the numbers, so undoubtedly you stole it from some place thinking it did something it didn't.
    I don't consider this "a try" of solving the problem. Do you know any C++ at all? You seem to have missed even the first lesson...

    The fact that you don't seem to have gasped the basis of the language doesn't bode well. You seem to be in the wrong mindset if you think you need to pass this ... test or whatever it is. You are not supposed to pass it. The end.
    You need to go back to basics.

    Well not 'nothing', he looks to have int main() right...

    But yes it looks like the "1 million monkeys on typewriters" approach to me. I.e. programming by writing things that look vaguely like code and expecting it to compile or actually do anything, which will never work. You actually have to learn how to do stuff.

    I must say that he just posted some random code only to get help and not get fired again.
