Integers and Lists
Hello,
I am stuck at some point in Java.
I have a list of 100 numbers that I have to check for the average of the 100 numbers.
The point is that they are listed in a list beneath eachother, the example is under...
My question is how to tally up these numbers, if tey are in a textfield like this:
Java Code:73 37 27 17 29 30 87 50 1 3 39

Well, I load the list from a .txt file, and then these numbers come in a textfield.
Then I have to calculate from these numbers the average...

Do all those numbers show up in one single textfield? Why not compute the sum (and count the number of numbers) while loading them from your text file? You already have the loop for reading the numbers from the file; just add a few statements and you're done.
kind regards,
Jos

You write here, you read here, it's a forum after all; you must have a loop somewhere in your code where you read the numbers from your file:
Java Code:while <a next number to read> { read number; stick the number in a list; }
Java Code:double sum= 0; int count= 0; while <a next number to read> { read number; count++; // keep track of the number of numbers; sum+= number; // update the sum stick the number in a list; } double average= 0; if (count > 0) // did we actually read anything? average= sum/count; // calculate the average

Yes, Thank you I solved it.
There was a bit of code that had a loop in it.
It read the rules of the incoming textfile, I simple counted that to eachother, and so I / it thru 100...
