Create as program that calculates the current grade in a class, the program should ask for 5 grades as well as the toal point value. I am new to programming and need help!

You need to explain what help you need.

DaniWeb Member Rules (which you agreed to when you signed up) include:
"Do provide evidence of having done some work yourself if posting questions from school or work assignments"

Post what you have done so far and someone will help you from there.

you don't need help, you need a spanking. If you'd paid attention in class you'd have known how to do this...

It's simple math, compared with simple programming. Nothing at all complicated about it.

So rather than sit there playing games, reread your course notes and instruction books, fire up your programming editor, and start putting some programs together.

commented: Lool..spanking +4

ypu can do it using c. This is a simple program. See the topic if and else in text and ther for example one program they keep and that ios closely related to what you want. search it

DonnSchwartz: ever took a Java course and handed in the solutions to the assignments writte in C ? why not Cobol?
at this point, the OP doesn't need another language, as JWenting stated, she needs to think about the classes/methods she needs, and start writing them.
as for her last sentence: with an attitude like that, she'll always need help for the simplest things.

and oh, if she can't do it in Java, she can't do it in C either. The solutions would be pretty much identical.
