    Does anyone know how to start this off?

    Write a program to compute the grade for every student of a class. In addition, your program needs to output a summary report showing the total number of students, and the number of students receiving each letter grade. To indicate that all students have already been processed, use a number larger than 100 for the first assignment score of the student as the sentinel.
    In other words, if the score for assign. #1 of a student is larger than 100; your program should report the collected summary and then terminate.

    Yes, this gets asked on pretty much a monthly basis, so search the board.

    But I would suggest you start with working out the grade for just one student to begin with.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I'd say start with a flowchart, then implement the case for one student, then two, and then N students.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
