i am getting 8.66 as my answer but i am suppose to get 8.33.

input 10 30 -15 0

not sure where my error is. can you help me please.

// This program is suppose to count the integers than average them.

// with zero being the end input.

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()

{

int num = 1; // the integers entered by the user

int amt = 0; // amount of numbers entered

float sum = 1; // the amount of numbers added and new sum after adding number

double avg; // the average of all the numbers

// display the while statement

while (num != 0)

{

cout << "Get a integer from the user.\n";

cin >> num;

sum = sum + num;

amt++;

}

// the equation for the average

avg = sum /(amt-1);

cout << " You have entered " << amt << " numbers.";

cout << " The average is " << avg << endl;

return 0;

}

Please use [code][/code] tags.

You should initialize sum to 0, not 1. You may also want to check for division by 0.

Hope that helps.
