    Post work calculator question

    hi!

    i have to write a program which asks the user "how many days" (he worked), then asks "how many hours in day 1" then "how many in day 2 etc..
    heres the thing what i cant figure out, since it involves arrays.
    when i enter 5 days, the program has to understand that he will ask me only until "how many days in day 5:" and then calculates the rest, which im probably capable of coding, but i cant wrap my head around that connection with that one. also since i study every day, all day and cant take a day off not to study programming, i have alot to finish still ,until end of year and my brain goes wooheehoo :S

    im thankful for any help or links, which adress that thingy.
    (couldnt find any array examples of that one at all)

    I would suggest to use a List. https://www.dotnetperls.com/list
    First you need to read the number of days.
    Then you use a for loop and read the number of hours for that day and add them to the list. Then you print the list and whatever else you want to do with it.
