I know this is an elementary assignment, but I'm new to this. I'm writing a program w/two functions, the first generates 10 random numbers, the second finds their average. The problem I'm having is with declaring the random function. I keep getting the error "Conflicting types for random". I don't see what my error is though. I get the error in the function declaration as well as in the function itself. Here's my code, which I think is good...does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you very much!

#include <stdio.h>

#include <stdlib.h>

#define ARY_SIZE 10

// Function Declarations

void random (int ary[]);

double average (int ary[]);

int main (void)

{

// Local Declarations

int ary[ARY_SIZE];

// Statements

random(ary);

printf("The average of the random numbers is: %.1lf\n", average(ary));

return 0;

} // main

/* ***************************** Random ********************************

This function fills the arry with random integers, between 10 and 20.

*/

void random (int ary[])

{

// Local Definitions

int range = (20 - 10) + 1;

int i;

// Statements

for (i = 0; i < ARY_SIZE; i++)

ary[i] = rand() % range + 10;

return;

}

/* *************************** Average **********************************

This function takes the random numbers from the random function and finds

their average. It returns it to the main function as a double.

*/

double average (int ary[])

{

// Local Definitions

int i;

int sum = 0;

// Statements

for (i = 0; i < ARY_SIZE; i++)

sum += ary[i];

return ((double)sum/ARY_SIZE);

}
