New java student, question about algorithm, please help :)
So i just got out of my first java programming class, and i've got my first homework assignment.
I just want to know if my logic is heading in the right direction, maybe get some tips, any help would be greatly appreciated.
heres my problem.
i need to write an algorithm for a program that can do the following
names and testscores need to be entered
calculate average test score
determine and print names of all students who are below average
determine high score
print names of students who are = to high score
so far ive worked out that i need to
ask user to input name, and testscore-input name -input testscore
i need to store name and testscore-?
i need to create a total variable to store a running average-
testaverage=testaverage +testscore x total
i need to ask for a new name, and if yes, i need to input the name and new score.
i need to compare that score with whats stored in "testscore" variable
then i need to out 2 lists
I am sooo confused on where to start, or how to loop to create new variables... basically im just confused. any help would be great appreciated!!!!
