Code:

#include <iostream> /*for cin and cout*/
int main() /*function main*/
{
int num = 0;
float sum= 0;
float avg= 0;
int count = 0;
int largest = 0;
int smallest= 0;
int product = 0;
while (1) //never ending loop//start loop body
{
std::cout <<"Please enter an integer enter (-1 to stop)";
std::cin >> num;
if (num == -1)
{ break; //get out of the loop
} else;
sum += num; // start else body
count++;
avg = (sum)/count;
if (count == 1)
{ smallest = largest = num;
} else;
// start else body;
if (num < smallest)
{ smallest = num;
if (num > largest)
largest = num;
else; //end body;
} else; //end body;
} //end loop body;
product = (smallest * largest); //product = num * num??
std::cout << "The number of the integers is " << count << std::endl;
std::cout << "The sum of the integers is " << sum << std::endl;
std::cout << "The average of the integers is " << avg << std::endl;
std::cout << "The product of the integers is " << product << std::endl;
std::cout << "The largest integers is " << largest << std::endl;
std::cout << "The smallest integers is " << smallest << std::endl;
return 0;
}

this board has been a tremendous amount of help and I have a couple of ???

1) If i enter three intergers into the program say 5 4 2 -1

everything work except my product out put it ends up with 10 instead of say 40, does that statement have to be in the while loop

somewhere???

2) smallest = largest = num; I'm a little confused about this statement if i enter say 5 4 2 is it ending up assigning 2 to num after the program runs???

many thanks to all
