### calculate class average function

hi i have to Write a program that reads a student's name, together with his or her test scores for at most 50 students from a file, provided by users of your program. The program should then compute the average test score for each student and assign the appropriate grade. The grade scale is as the follows:
90 <= average < 100, A; 80 <= average < 90 B; 70 <= average < 80, C;
60 <= average < 70, D; average < 60, F.
The program also calculates the class average.

all the students average and grades are good but the function that calculate the class average is giving me wrong result could you please help to figure out what s wrong
this the data from file

There is a problem with your calclassAverage. There are no comments telling me what the values do or where they come from so I'm not going to sit here and debug it. Put in some cout's for every value you read and calculate. That ouput should show you where the problem lies.

while trying to understand your code I added my own values, and came up with a work around. It works but doesn't answer your question about what is wrong.

You might look at it and use what you find useful.

Not sure why you had to post another thread on this. But like I said in the other one, and Sam has said here, without knowing what you are trying to do in the calclasseAverage function we can't help you. The code is too convoluted for us to simply guess.
hi thank you very much for your help that was some errors but i correct them and it work fine ,the other thing is i have to store the names in alphabetic order using parallel aray could you help me please!
