Hello, I am having trouble summing up the monthly payment for the loan amounts the user has entered. Also, whenever it runs it says loan 1 is loan 0 and loan 2 is loan 1, etc...Any ideas on how I can fix this to have an output like this?

"
Please enter a loan amount: 1000
Please enter the number of months: 10
Continue (yes/no)? yes
Please enter a loan amount: 999
Please enter the number of months: 30
Continue (yes/no)? yes
Please enter a loan amount: 1234
Please enter the number of months: 5
Continue (yes/no)? no
************************* <<- YES PRINT THESE ASTERISKS
There are 3 loans.
Loan 1 for $1000 for 10 months has a payment of $100 per month
Loan 2 for $999 for 30 months has a payment of $33.3 per month
Loan 1 for $1234 for 5 months has a payment of $246.8 per month
TOTAL MONTHLY PAYMENT: $380.1"

Thanks for any help.

>>cout << "Loan " << x << " For $"
add 1 to x so you get 1, 2, ... cout << "Loan " << x+1 << " For $" >>cout << "has a payment of $" << (double)loanAmount[x]/(double)numMonths[x] << " per month." << endl;
To get the sum of the above, do this in two steps and add them up on another variable

float total = 0;

...
...
float n = double)loanAmount[x]/(double)numMonths[x];
total += n;
cout <<  "has a payment of $" << n << " per month." << endl;

Now when that loop ends the variable total will have the sum of those amounts.
