I dont know how to start it out and i know a little about the if-else statements, in my class we are using netbeans and using java..

//This is java forum
// read two values (Obtained point and Maximum points)
double percentage = (Obtained Point/Maximum Point)*100 //-----------> This gives you % of
// the points.

printf("Percentage %0.0f",percentage);
printf("A GRADE");
else if(percentage>=80)
printf("B GRADE");
else if(percentage>=70)
printf("C GRADE");
else if(percentage>=60)
printf("D GRADE");
else if(percentage>=50)
printf("E GRADE");
printf("F GRADE");

Hope the code is helpful for you,


Assuming you're in college (and courses started at the end of August, start of September), it would mean two months have passed in the semester. Are you telling me you don't have a clear understanding of how "if-else" statements work?

Anyways, here's an example of the type of program you're looking for. [SOURCE]
