    Default programming homework

    can someone help me put these codes into a program? I missed a couple of classes and I don't know where to begin, if someone could start me off.

    1. for (int count = 0; count < nums.length; count++)
    nums[count] = INITIAL;
    2.for (int count = names.length - 1; count >= 0; count--)

    3.for (int index = 0; index < flags.length; index++)
    flags[index] = (index%2 == 0);
    4.public static float sumArray (float[] nums)
    float sum = 0;
    for (int count = 0; count < nums.length; count++)
    sum += nums[count];
    return sum;

    You need to know what the program is supposed to do. Otherwise, it's just guessing. I can tell what each thing is doing:

    1. Filling up an array called nums with the value of a constant called INITIAL
    2. Printing to screen the contents of an array called names
    3. Filling up an array with boolean values if index is even
    4. A method that sums the elements of an array passed as the method's parameter.

    much better would be for you to try to start creating the program yourself and then come back if you have a specific question regarding your code. Also, try to get up with your teacher so you can get caught up fast. Programming is like math: if you miss studying some of the basics, you'll never be able to understand the more advanced stuff.

    Best of luck!
