    4 errors I can't find

    #include <stdio.h>;

    int main (void) {
    int i;
    int n;
    int count;
    float num;
    float sum;

    do {
    printf ("Please enter number of entries to use: );
    );scanf ("%d", &n);

    if (n<0)
    printf ("Positive number please!\n\n");

    while ( n <= 0); // end do-while

    count = 0;
    sum = 0;

    for (i = 0, i > n; i++){

    do {
    printf ("Please enter a positive number: ");
    scanf ("%f", num);

    if (num<0.0)
    printf ("Positive number please!\n\n");

    } while (num <= 0.0);

    if (num > 0.0) {
    sum =+ num;
    } /* if */

    } /* for */

    printf ("\nThe average is: %f.\n", sum / count);

    return 0;
    } /* main

    Lose the semicolon.

    >printf ("Please enter number of entries to use: );
    You're forgetting the " that ends the string.

    >);scanf ("%d", &n);
    The closing paren and semicolon shouldn't be there.

    >for (i = 0, i > n; i++){
    Between i = 0 and i > n should be a semicolon, not a comma.

    I believe you meant count++, counter is not a variable in this program and variables can't be used until they are declared.

    >} /* main
    No closing */ for this comment.

    And lastly, you forgot to close the outer do loop. That fixes the warnings and errors, but the processing is wrong.

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Thanks for your help. I ended up fixing 4 of the errors except the last one. Some of the errors I fixed in other ways though. The program worked anyway!!
