Hello there everyone. I am having a bit of trouble with my C programming. I do not know anything about C programming and this is my first semester and already my professor is putting pressure on me. Anyone that can help would be appreciated.

So I am supposed to create a program that reads from a file with the numbers:
98 96 14 95 88 64 37 72 78 120 86 73 84 73 104 66 92 19 63 45

After that I am supposed to calculate all the grades for each one like A, A+, A-, B, B+, B- C, C+, C-, D, D+, D-, F, all invalid grades less than 21 and more than 100 are considered invalid

So at the end of my code it should print out:
The number of B grades is: 3
The numerical average for a B grade is : 86
The number of B+ grades is: 2
The number of B- grades is: 1

So I am having trouble on how to read all the A grades and do average, all the B grades and do average, and so on. My professor didn't teach us that yet, so I am very confused. Its easy with scanf, but from the file, I don't know. If anyone could help would be so glad. Thanks in advance.

You just missed the code-tag on your post :)

OK, what you could do is add another variable to each of the grade groups that you have (A, B, C etc) that would store the average as you go along. So every time you add one to count, update the average as well.

A normal way to handle this kind of thing would be with structures and/or arrays, but you might not have come to those in your course yet.

Thanks for the reply. But I am still confused. I know that I have to have an int average, but like lets say the two numbers 88 and 86 are being read from the file, how do I tell the program that to save these numbers and that they are letter B grades. Could you like explain the concept to me on how this works.

So do I have like

averageA = averageA + numA
averageB = averageB + numA
averageC = averageC + numA

Before you concern yourself with averages I would get your while loop working, as it is you read the last grade twice.

Try changing your loop condition to something like...

while( fscanf(infile, "%d", &numA) != EOF)

Edited 5 Years Ago by gerard4143: n/a

Well, you already have a bunch of if... else statements that count up the number of each grade. If you take one of them, say

else if (numA >= 91){
    printf("The number grade %d is a A\n", numA);
    countA = countA + 1;
    gradeAminus = gradeAminus + 1;
}

and change it to

else if (numA >= 91){
    printf("The number grade %d is a A\n", numA);
    countA = countA + 1;
    gradeAminus = gradeAminus + 1;
    averageA += numA;    // update average here
}

Then after you've processed all the grades, you just need something like

averageA /= countA;

and you're done. Does that make sense?

Thank you very much everyone especiall ravenous. I was doing
averageA = averageA / numA. I dont know what I was thinking. I felt soo stupid. But ravenous, after you showed me that averageA = averageA / countA; I was like dang, that was so silly of me. But I am very thankful. Here is my final code
