View Full Version : Array loops and while confusment

Below is the code, and current print out.

What I need todo is have the ability to have the input record be any vaule, other words onetime 5 records the next maybe 50.

And should the printf be change too println?

Is there away to add a print that displays A=2 B=1 C=1 D=2 F=1

import java.io.FileReader;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class Grades {
static public void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

int avg = 0;
Scanner input = new Scanner(new FileReader("grades.txt"));

int[] numGrade = new int[5];
String[] name = new String[5]; // stores name of each student
int[] avgMarks = new int[5]; // stores avg marks of each student
String[] letterGrade = new String[5]; // stores grade of each student
int totalMarks =0; // stores total marks

for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
name[i] = input.next();
avg = 0;
for (int j = 0; j<3; j++) {
numGrade[j] = input.nextInt();
avg += numGrade[j];
if (j == 2) {
avgMarks[i] = avg/3;
totalMarks += avgMarks[i];


// get the grade

for (int i=0; i<5; i++) {

if (avgMarks[i] < 60) {
letterGrade[i] = "F";

} else if (avgMarks[i] < 70) {
letterGrade[i] = "D";

} else if (avgMarks[i] < 80) {
letterGrade[i] = "C";

} else if (avgMarks[i] < 90){
letterGrade[i] = "B";

} else {
letterGrade[i] = "A";

for (int i = 0; i<5; i++) {
System.out.printf("%s\t has an average grade of %d%%. You will receive a %s in this class. \n", name[i], avgMarks[i], letterGrade[i]);

System.out.printf("\nOverall Class Average is %d%%.",totalMarks/5);

//generates three random numbers between 0 and 50, calculates the average.
int one,two,three;

int average=(one+two+three)/3;
System.out.println("\n\nThe following program generates 3 random numbers, then averages them.");
System.out.println("\nThe average of\t"+one+" "+two+" "+three+" is "+average);



Which prints the following

Connie has an average grade of 85%. You will receive a B in this class.
James has an average grade of 92%. You will receive a A in this class.
Susan has an average grade of 52%. You will receive a F in this class.
Jake has an average grade of 66%. You will receive a D in this class.
Karen has an average grade of 77%. You will receive a C in this class.

Overall Class Average is 74%.

The following program generates 3 random numbers, then averages them.

The average of 46 44 21 is 37

You need to resize your arrays if you plan on using a primitive array. This requires manually allocating a new array size and copying the existing data into the new array and discarding the original. The easier solution is to use an ArrayList as a collection, or a Hashtable to associate name => grades (Hashtable<String, ArrayList<Integer>>). That only works if the 'name' is unique.
Printf versus println is really irrelevant. The only difference is that printf requires \n to be added for linefeeds.
