So I'm starting to learn Python (3.43) code on my own time and my friend who is a major in Comp Sci made up a little assignment for me to try to complete although I have no class experience. So what I need to do is make some code where the user is prompted to input how many scores to be entered and for hose to be inputed on each line which i have successfully completed. The hard part is figuring out how to make the min, max, and avg work into this. This is my cide thus far:
def scores(): print('we are starting') count = int(input('Enter amount of scores: ')) print('Each will be entered one per line') scoreList =  for i in range(1, count+1): scoreList.append(int(input('Enter score: '))) print(scoreList) print(scoreList) print('thank you the results are:') mysum = sum(count) # mysum needs to be a float average = 1.0*mysum / count print ('Total: ', str(count)) print ('Average: ', str(average)) print ('Minimum: ', str(min(count))) print ('Maximum: ', str(max(count))) scores()
While a direct answer is helpful, I'd really like to understand what it is I may be doing wrong or some pointers on how to make it better. I understand my code skills are elementary but I'm trying to grasp the basics without paying a large amount for a class. I do however plan on taking a course once I can grasp the basics. thank you!
