Hello,

I have this probelm posted below. I pretty much have it figured out and it is still in rough draft form. I know it could be optimized better but, I'm not quite sure how to get it to look better. Although, the main reason I am looking for help is for the input of the current month and the previous rainfall data. I have to have the months go backwards while the program receives the data. I tried changing the for loop and all I got was a screen filled with programing characters. I'm not sure what I have to do to get it operational. The getMonth function starts on line 36 and ends on 55. The Actual Rainfall function starts on line 69 and ends on 80. These two functions are where I need the help on.

```
