# calculating the average of five different numbers

Posts: 1Member
I need some help getting my program(QBasic) to work right for me. My project is to simply write a program that inputs name, age, and 5 test scores. If the person's age is not 25 or older, then a message should say that the student is underage. I need the program to calculate the 5 scores and give me the average, and then tell me the different letter grades A,B,C,D, and if the average is below a 70%, then i need for a message to say that the student did not pass. I am stuck, someone with more knowledge please help, i would be most appreciative.....

:
10 print "Enter Person's Name";
20 input pname\$
30 print pname\$
40 end

Continue from there

I don't know if I have understand correctly what you are looking for, but here is a very easy code for what I think that you need.

DEFINT A-Z
number.of.results = 5 'increase if more results
CLS
INPUT "Name: ", name\$
INPUT "Age: ", age
IF age < 25 THEN PRINT "You are too jung!": END 'person under 25?
FOR temp = 1 TO number.of.results 'ask for results
PRINT "Insert grade score" + STR\$(temp)
CASE "A", "a", "1": grades(temp) = 1
CASE "B", "b", "2": grades(temp) = 2
CASE "C", "c", "3": grades(temp) = 3
CASE "D", "d", "4": grades(temp) = 4
CASE "E", "e", "5": grades(temp) = 5
CASE "F", "f", "6": grades(temp) = 6
temp = temp - 1
END SELECT
NEXT
FOR temp = 1 TO number.of.results
NEXT
IF result > 6 / 100 * 30 THEN '100% - 70% (70% needed) = 30, so * 30
PRINT "Average under 70%!"
ELSE
PRINT "Average over 70%!"
END IF
END

:

Try copy/pasting this program and running it.

It will start by asking for 4 parameters. These are:

A grade (1-100) you consider to be the lowest A,B,C and D. Based on this, it gives the grades A thru F to the tests and the average. An average below 70% can be failing (like you asked) but you would have to tell it that the lowest "D" would be 70. This should give you some flexibility. Hope this helps, and GOOD LUCK!!
