How to write a program to calculate and display sum in two dimensional array?
I have a college tutorial question that required me to write a program which need to calculate and display the sum of each column of a two dimensional array. For example, in the following array
2 6 1 5
8 2 7 5
1 0 4 4
the method shoudl display the following
The sum of column 0 is 11
The sum of column 1 is 8
The sum of column 2 is 10
The sum of column 3 is 4
Assume that in the calling program the array A is declared as float A[MAXROW][MAXCOL]; where MAXROW and MAXCOL are global int constants.
The method should have a two dimensional array as its only parameter and shold not return any values.
I have roughly wrote something on a paper, but i jst dun get the idea how to link all the tings 2gether, can anyone pls help me of this?
public class array
public static final MAXROW{
public static final MAXCOL{
public void calculate Sum(){
float A[MAXROW][MAXCOL];
for (int i = 0; i<MAXROW.length; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j<MAXCOL.length;j++)
{
(I don't have idea in tis part)
}
}
i knw my code is poor and not completed, but im in the progress of learning, im using netbean 6.9.1, pls help me out ..thx

Do it 'bottom up'; i.e. calculate the sum of one column; let j be the column for which you have to add all the numbers of a two dimensional array 'a'. The number of rows is known, i.e. a.length, so finding that total is just one loop:
Java Code:int sum= 0; for (int row= 0; row < a.length; a++) sum+= a[row][j];
kind regards,

Im having a hard time understanding your questions, but I think the easiest way to do this would be to create a static method to produce the sum of a single array, then loop through the 2d array applying the static method and storing the values in a new array.

How would you find the sum of a single array? Each index in a 2d array is actually a single array
Java Code:int[][] x = new int[4][]; int[0] = { 1, 2, 3 }; int[1] = { 4, 5, 2 }; int[2] = { 6, 8, 9 }; int[3] = { 2, 5, 9 , 10 };

As I wrote you should apply my code snippet to a single column j of your matrix. It would be easiest to turn it into a little method, like this:
Java Code:private void calculateColumn(int[][] array, int j) { // my code snippet goes here // and a System.out.println( ... ) statement goed here }
Java Code:public void calculate(int[][] array) { for (int col= 0; col < array[0].length; col++) calculateColumn(array, col); }

generic, anonymously class, interface )
Java Code:import java.util.ArrayList; import java.util.List; public class SumEx { public static void main(String[] arg) { Integer[][] mass = { {2, 6, 1, 5}, {8, 2, 7, 5}, {1, 0, 4, 4}, }; System.out.println("Summ column 0 : " + summ(build(mass, 0))); System.out.println("Summ column 1 : " + summ(build(mass, 1))); System.out.println("Summ column 2 : " + summ(build(mass, 2))); System.out.println("Summ column 3 : " + summ(build(mass, 3))); } private static <T extends Number> List<T> build(T[][] mass, int index) { List<T> list = new ArrayList<T>(); for (T[] t : mass) { list.add(t[index]); } return list; } private static <T extends Number> double summ(List<T> list) { return forEach(list, new Operation<Number>() { @Override public Number invoke(Number result, Number number) { return result.doubleValue() + number.doubleValue(); } }); } interface Operation<A extends Number> { public A invoke(A result, A a); } private static <T extends Number> double forEach(List<T> list, Operation<Number> operation) { double result = 0D; for (T t : list) { result = operation.invoke(result, t).doubleValue(); } return result; } }
