I'm trying to get how many student pass and fail along with the percentage of students passing and failing. Any and all help is appreciated.

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
int passing = 0, failing = 0, total = 0;
double gpa = 0.0, passingPercent = 0.0, failingPercent = 0.0;
while (gpa>5){
if (grades = 'a' || 'b' || 'c' || 'd'){
passing++;
gpa += 4.0;}
failing++;
}
break;
}
}
total = passing + failing;
if (total > 0)
{passingPercent = (passing / total) * 1.0;
failingPercent = (failing / total) * 1.0;
gpa = (gpa / total) * 1.0;
}
cout << "Students passing: " << passing << "(" << passingPercent << ")" << endl;
cout << "Students failing: " << failing << "(" << failingPercent << ")" << endl;
system("pause");

return(0);
}

The while loop will never be executed because the initial value of gpa is less than 5

double gpa = 0.0, passingPercent = 0.0, failingPercent = 0.0;
while (gpa>5){

This

if (grades = 'a' || 'b' || 'c' || 'd'){

is assigning 1 to grades. I think you meant

It is not clear what the statement below is doing

gpa += 4.0;}

Again instead of the comparision you use the assignment opeartor here

and here

As far as I know persent is calculated by multiplying an expression by 100. Why do you use 1.0 instead of 100.0?

{passingPercent = (passing / total) * 1.0;
failingPercent = (failing / total) * 1.0;

This statement again is unclear

gpa = (gpa / total) * 1.0;

My percents still don't work but the rest does now. Any ideas?
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
char ch1='a', ch2='b', ch3='c', ch4='d', ch5='e', ch6='f', ch7='z';
char ch;
int passing = 0, failing = 0, total = 0;
double gpa = 0.0, passingPercent = 0.0, failingPercent = 0.0;
//while (gpa=gpa){

do {
cin >> ch;
if ( ch == ch1 || ch == ch2 || ch == ch3 ||ch == ch4){
passing++;
}
else if (ch == ch5 || ch == ch6){
failing++;
}
}while(ch!= ch7);
total = passing + failing;
if (total > 0){
passingPercent = ((passing / total) * 100.0);
failingPercent = ((failing / total) * 100.0);
}
cout << "Students passing: " << passing << "(" << passingPercent << ")" << endl;
cout << "Students failing: " << failing << "(" << failingPercent << ")" << endl;
system("pause");

return(0);
}
