    you have to write a program ... ok, since you've posted code, I assumed you already had. don't just say what you have to do, say what you're having difficulties with. seems to me all you need to implement is a very simple if statement. Read More


I have to write a java program.
A certain on-line testing program records student exam results in a text file, each line of which has the form:

name examScore
Write a program that (using an array) analyzes student performance on an exam using the information from such a file. The program should input the name of the text file, and then display the worst score, the best score, the average score, the standard deviation, and a histogram -- a bar graph indicating the frequency with which a given score occurred. For example, if three people scored 74, five people scored 75, six people scored 76, no one scored 77 and two people scored 78, then that portion of the histogram should appear as:

75: **
78: **
Entries below the worst or above the best should not be displayed.

I have trouble in Function, public static void printHist(double[] sorted). I can't able to display Histogram. And in, public class DoubleArrayOps, I have trouble swaping min and max.


I am geting errors:

Histo.java:26: incompatible types
found   : double[]
required: double
    double sorted = scoreArr;
Histo.java:38: printHist(double[]) in Histo cannot be applied to (double)
Histo.java:111: cannot find symbol
symbol  : method hasNextInt()
location: class double[]
    while (sorted.hasNextInt())
Histo.java:113: cannot find symbol
symbol  : method nextInt()
location: class double[]
        int score = sorted.nextInt();
4 errors

I did every thing I know.


error nr 1:

scoreArr is an array, yet you try to pass it as a single double, which is impossible.
either you store one element of that array as:
double sorted = scoreArr[indexOfWantedElement];
or you add all the values, using an iteration, or you turn sorted into an array.

error nr 2
this too 'll be fixed if you change sorted (see error nr 1) into an array, which is what your method expect.

but, then you'll run into this problem:

(double[] sorted)
    sorted = scoreArr[i];

you'll try to assign a single double to an array of doubles, which is also incorrect.

errors nr 3 and 4
just because the Scanner class contains hasNextInt and nextInt methods doesn't mean that each class has them. double, for instance, doesn't have them, nor does an array of doubles.


your question is itself ambiguous and thus as a beginner I tried it to evaluate the things in the program but could not able to find the exact theme of the site.


Celestia, I have a bit trouble trying to figure out what it is you are trying to say.

what "things" have you tried to evaluate, and what "theme" of what "site" couldn't you find?


Thanks'. Stultuske, I finally submitted with no error and I don't know what celestia trying to say.
