2D Array. method problem.
making one temperature class for my homework and I'm lost is outer space now
Troubble is to get the methods done as they should be now.
getAverageEachDay() shall be taking the hours at the day, add them up and divide by the hours length. That iknow i should be doing. but the troubble is to execute it. :P
Java Code:class Temperature { private String name; private double[][] temp; public Temperature(String name, double[][] temp2) { this.name = name; int day = temp2.length; int hour = temp2[0].length; temp =new double[day][hour]; for(int i=0;i<day;i++){ for(int j=0;j<hour;j++){ temp[i][j] = temp2[i][j]; } } } public int getHours() { return temp[0].length; } public int getDays(){ return temp.length; } public double[] getAverageEachDay() { int Days = getDays(); int Hours = getHours(); double[] middelTemp = new double[Days]; for (int i=0; i<Days; i++) { for (int j=0;j<Hours;j++) { middelTemp[Days] = temp[i][j]; } } middelTemp = middelTemp / Hours; return middelTemp; } }

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
Java Code:middelTemp = middelTemp / Hours;
And, should you not also be using the "day" index (i) in the inner loop rather than using the length (Days) of the array as the index?

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
How do this method look like ?
Java Code:public double[] getAverageEachDay() { double Average = 0; int Days = getDays(); int Hours = getHours(); double[] middelTemp = new double[Days]; for (int i=0; i<Hours; i++) { for (int j=0;j<Days;j++) { Average += temp[j][i]; } Average = Average / Hours; middelTemp[i] = Average; } return middelTemp; }

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
You need to reinitiate "Average" for every iteration of the outer loop, of course, or the daily average will just get higher and higher, right?
Talk about global warming.
Edit: P.S. just as a note /= also exists (just like the += you used earlier).

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
Thanks again! Global warming is just a kitten compared to what's gonna happen in the next weeks in this program :D
Java Code:public double[] getAverageEachDay() { double Average = 0; int Days = getDays(); int Hours = getHours(); double[] middelTemp = new double[Days]; for (int i=0; i<Hours; i++) { for (int j=0;j<Days;j++) { Average += temp[j][i]; } [B]Average /= Hours;[/B] middelTemp[i] = Average; [B]Average = 0;[/B] } return middelTemp; }

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
Working on a new methos now. I'm gonna get each columm and then get the average of those.
I'm not sure how the for loops should be at all either.
Java Code:public double getHourAverage(){ int Days = getDays(); int Hours = getHours(); double avgHours = 0; double[] avgHours2 = new double[Days];; for(int i=0;i<Days;i++){ for(int j=0;j<Hours;j++){ } } return avgHours;
the seccond loop will take each hour in that day, witch is wrong.
I want hour[i] of all days and make the average out of that.

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
Well, when the outer loop is days you are iterating over the rows, what do you think would happen if the outer loop used the hours (with the respective trading of which position the index is entered in).

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
something like this =
Java Code:public double getHourAverage(){ int Days = getDays(); int Hours = getHours(); double avgHours = 0; double[] avgHours2 = new double[Days];; for(int i=0;i<Days;i++){ for(int j=0;j<temp[i].length;j++){ avgHours += temp[i][j]; } avgHours /=temp[i].length; avgHours2[i] = avgHours; avgHours = 0; } return avgHours; }

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
No. You need to use "Hours" in the outer loop and "Days" in the inner loop and swap the index references in the += line. Your result array will also need to be the correct length, of course (hint, the outer loop variable as it should be).

Another double loop, of course.

Re: 2D Array. method problem.
yeh, ofcourse. never that easy is it ? :P
Java Code:public String toString(){ String result = ""; String result2 = ""; result +=name+"\n"; int Days = getDays(); int Hours = getHours(); for (int i=0; i<Days; i++) { for (int j=0;j<Days;j++) { result2 += temp[i][j]; result2 +=" "; } result +=result2+"\n"; result2 = ""; } return result; }
