Heres my problem:

I created a method that returns a handicap in integer form. Before you can return it, however, you must cast it as an int. My problem arises in some cases where the handicap returned is 1 too high. I'm wondering where my logic may be wrong in some cases; so far.. I can't find the problem.

public int seeHandicap ()

{

int highScore;

float average = 0, sum = 0;

double handicap;

highScore = hiScore(); // returns highest score in array

for ( int i = 0; i < SCORES; i++ )

sum = sum + scores[i]; // adds all scores in array together

sum -= highScore; // highest score is thrown out

average = sum / ( SCORES - 1 ); // float = float/int (default float,right?)

handicap = ( average - PAR ) * HANDICAP_P; // (equation for finding handicap)

if ( handicap < 0 )

return 0;

return (int)handicap; // casts double handicap as an integer

}

thanks
