Find Largest Figure And Figure Less Than 20% Of Largest

Dave O'DeaDave O'Dea Posts: 2

Hi, I have written some which needs to:

  • read in 200 floating point numbers that
    represent the sales figures of 200 sales staff.

  • once the 200 numbers have been read in code should find the largest individual sales figure

  • code should then use this value to display all those sales figures which are less than 20 % of the highest value.

Here is my code so far, however, for largest it currently only prints the last entry scanned in ...

</p> <pre><code> int main() { float sales[200], lowsales = 0, largest, limit, lower; int i, l, j, k, num; printf("Enter no of figures:"); scanf("%d", & num); for (l = 0; l < num; l++) { printf("Enter sales figure # %d: ", l + 1); scanf("%f", & sales[i]); } largest = sales[0]; for (j = 0; j < num; j++) { if (sales[i]>largest) { sales[i] = largest; // printf("Inline largest: %f\n", largest ); } } printf("largest: %f\n", largest); printf("\nSales figures which are less than 20 per cent of largest sales:\n"); limit = largest * (0.2); for (k = 0; k < num; k++) { if (sales[i] < limit) { lowsales = sales[i]; } printf("lowsales: %f\n", lowsales); } //system("pause"); return 0; }

This the output I get from this code:

        Enter no of figures:4
        Enter sales figure # 1: 7979.999
        Enter sales figure # 2: 8989.777
        Enter sales figure # 3: 3.455
        Enter sales figure # 4: 5959.555
        largest: 5959.555176

        Sales figures which are less than 20 per cent of largest sales:
        lowsales: 0.000000
        lowsales: 0.000000
        lowsales: 0.000000
        lowsales: 0.000000

Could I ask if anyone would mine to please help me correct what I have done so far ?

    Solved:

    #include<stdlib.h>
    #include<stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
        float sales[200], lowsales=0, largest, limit, lower;
        int Count1, Count2, Count3, num;
    
        printf("Enter no of figures:");
        scanf("%d", &num);
    
        for (Count1=0; Count1<num; Count1++)
        {
            printf("Enter sales figure # %d: ",Count1+1);
            scanf("%f",&sales[Count1]);
        }
    
        largest = sales[0];
    
        for (Count2=0; Count2<num; Count2++)
        {
            if (sales[Count2]>largest)
            {
                largest = sales[Count2];
            }
        }
        printf("%f\n", largest); //added this just to check that it is setting largest correctly
    
        printf("Sales figures which are less than 20 per cent of largest sales:\n");
        limit = largest*0.2;
        for (Count3=0; Count3<num; Count3++)
        {
            if (sales[Count3]<limit)
            {
                lowsales = sales[Count3]; //you just had them in wrong order ;-)
                printf("%f\n",lowsales);
            }
        }
        //system("pause");
        return 0;
    }
