This is the first program I wrote, well besides Hello world. I put about a lot of hours into this code, it started as a divisional calculator than i evolved it so it would ask your name and calculate your average and i was messing around with the system ("") code to manipulate it to change the text and background color, you can change it if you want just go Start>Run>cmd>help colors> then where the colors are enter it in the system("color blah") well hope it works and i hope you like it

|  Description: Program that takes the input from 5 grades, |
|  averages them, then evaluates them (taken from           |
|  Gradeapp.cpp prog). It then gives a menu to quit or      |
|  repeat the program, the code takes advantage of the      |
|  system function to start the evaluater program and change|
|  the color and title of the program.                      |

Sorry for all the comments most of them are for me so incase i get stupid and forget one of those lines, a little mental
helper, and yes before anyone asks and wastes a post i am in school why else would i make this :)

I have a little question in my line of code that asks for a name how do i add an exception for the name like if (name==blah) it tells me that blah is undefined.
