PostSubject: Programmer's thread   Fri Dec 17, 2010 10:40 am

As I know of at least one other beginning programmer here, this is the place to discuss programming in general and share simple programs with others.

Deza, here it is: it calculates the average of five numbers.


#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
double prinum;
double secnum;
double trinum;
double quadnum;
double quinnum;

double result;

cout << "This program will calculate the average of five numbers you enter.";
cout << "\n\n";

cout << "Enter the first number.";
cout << "\n\n ";
cin >> prinum;
cout << "\n\n";

cout << "Now enter the second number.";
cout << "\n\n ";
cin >> secnum;
cout << "\n\n";

cout << "Now enter the third number.";
cout << "\n\n ";
cin >> trinum;
cout << "\n\n";

cout << "Now enter the fourth number.";
cout << "\n\n ";
cin >> quadnum;
cout << "\n\n";

cout << "Finally, enter the fifth number.";
cout << "\n\n ";
cin >> quinnum;
cout << "\n\n";

cout << "The average of the five numbers is ";
result = (prinum + secnum + trinum + quadnum + quinnum) / 5;
cout << result;
cout << ".";

return 0;

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold eternity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.

<superdeformedchibi> tried to think of rapture joke, but couldn't. At first I was kinda upset at my writer's block but then I realized it's not the end of the world.

That seems quiet good. I'll make a ruby alternative soon.
In the mean time, my bady indented maths question machine.
def hello
      puts 'whats your name'
      name = gets.chomp
      puts "Hello ". + name

def maths_question
v2 = 1 + rand(22)
v1 = 1 + rand(22)

correctA = v1.to_i + v2.to_i   
   puts "Whats the sum of #{v1} and #{v2} ?"
   youSAY = gets.chomp
   while youSAY != correctA.to_s
      puts 'Wrong, please try again.'
      youSAY = gets.chomp

def maths_congrats
   puts 'Congrats, you got the correct answer!'

puts 'Do you want to do maths questions?'
domath = gets.chomp
while domath == 'yes'

puts 'Do you want to do more?'
domath = gets.chomp
puts 'Well thats a shame, goodbye then.'
puts "Press enter to quit."

Okay, the alternative of Ely's program (in ruby).


# As you can see its much more simple.

puts 'Do you want to find the average of five numbers? (yes or no)'
yesno = gets.chomp

# If the person enters anything besides yes it goes strait to the "press enter to quit"

while yesno == 'yes'
puts 'Please enter your numbers, eg. "10 20 50 70 60"'

# Gets the five numbers and splits it into a array

nt = gets.chomp.split(" ")

# Adds the numbers in the array together

ntt = nt[1].to_i + nt[2].to_i + nt[3].to_i + nt[4].to_i + nt[5].to_i

#  Divides the sum of the array by five, to find the average.
nttt = ntt.to_i/5

# The #{nttt} is a quicker way of making the nttt variable into a sperate string.

puts "The average of your numbers is #{nttt}"
puts 'Do you want to go it again?'

# If the answer = yes then it returns the user to the beginning of the loop.

yesno = gets.chomp

#  To prevent the program from exiting to quickly I've made it so the user has to enter something.

puts 'Press enter to quit.'
