ok i have to write a program that takes six test scores as input and stores them in an array. It drops the lowest score, and computes the average of the remaining five scores. It outputs the average score rounded to one decimal point. This is what I have and i get error C2661: 'findLowest' : no overloaded function takes 0 arguments

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

float lowest;
float i;
double avg;

float Score1;
float Score2;
float Score3;
float Score4;
float Score5;

float testScore;
float lowScore;

int sz=5;

//Function Prototype
void getScore();
void findLowest( int testScore[], int sz );
void calcAverage ( );

void getScore()
{

float Score1, Score2, Score3, Score4, Score5;

cout << "Enter in 5 test scores and I will store ";
cout << "them in variables. ";
cin >> Score1 >> Score2 >> Score3 >> Score4 >> Score5;
cout << fixed << showpoint;
}

void findLowest( float testScore[], int sz )
{

float lowest = testScore[0]; // make the first element of the array the lowest.
/* loop through the array and compare the rest with
first element.
*/

for ( int i = 0; i < sz; i++ )
{
if ( testScore[i] < lowest )
{
lowest = testScore[i];
}
}

cout << "The lowest is " << lowest << endl;

}
void calcAverage()
{

for ( float i = 0.0; sz < i; i++ )
{
if ( i > lowest )
{
i*= (float (Score1), float (Score2), float (Score3), float (Score4));
avg = (i)/4.0;
}
}

cout << "The Average is " << avg << endl;
}

int main( )
{
cout << "Using Functions ";
cout << "to calculate the average of a series of functions.";
getScore();

// here is my error//;
findLowest()float testScore(i*), int sz );
calcAverage();
cout << "calculate the average of a ";
cout << "series of functions.";

#pragma region wait
cout<<" Press Enter to Quit";
cin.ignore();
cin.get();
#pragma end region

return 0;``````

any help would be great thanks

line 86: you are calling the function wrong `findLowest(testScore, sz );` But that will produce another error because textScore is NOT an array of floats, but a single float variable.

ok thanks
now how can i fix that
