Hi guys, I'm writing a program to score a performers score, based on 5 judges. The score will be calculated by dropping the highest score and the lowest score, then averaging the other 3 together. We aren't allowed to use arrays or vectors yet.. How can i make this program better plus could someone help me with the curly brace error I'm getting...
Here is the original question:
A particular talent competition has five judges, each of whom awards a score between
0 and 10 to each performer. Fractional scores, such as 8.3, are allowed. A performer’s
final score is determined by dropping the highest and lowest score received, then averaging
the three remaining scores. Write a program that uses this method to calculate a
contestant’s score. It should include the following functions:
• void getJudgeData() should ask the user for a judge’s score, store it in a reference
parameter variable, and validate it. This function should be called by main once for
each of the five judges.
• void calcScore() should calculate and display the average of the three scores that
remain after dropping the highest and lowest scores the performer received. This
function should be called just once by main and should be passed the five scores.
The last two functions, described below, should be called by calcScore , which uses
the returned information to determine which of the scores to drop.
• int findLowest() should find and return the lowest of the five scores passed to it.
• int findHighest() should find and return the highest of the five scores passed to it.
Input Validation: Do not accept judge scores lower than 0 or higher than 10.
And here is my code thus far:
using namespace std;
void getJudgeData(double &, int );
void calcScore(double, double, double, double, double);
double findLowest(double, double, double, double, double );
double findHighest(double, double, double, double, double );
calcScore(judge1, judge2, judge3, judge4, judge5);
void getJudgeData(double &score, int x)
cout <<"Please enter Judge " << x <<"'s score:\n";
cin >> score;
while (score < 0 || score > 10)
cout << "Score must be between 0 and 10. Please enter a score in that range:\n";
cin >> score;
double findLowest(double s1, double s2, double s3, double s4, double s5)
double findHighest (double s1, double s2, double s3, double s4, double s5)
avgScore = (total - highest - lowest) / 3;
cout << "The average score is "<< aveScore << endl;
