### Help with arrays!!

Im working on this program where i need to automatically generate 10 random numbers using an array, but the user will decide the range of the random numbers by choosing a min and max value.
Then I need to sort the array, find the median and the user needs to call upon a arrau location for the value (user can choose to see the value of array 4)

Below is my code,
the program runs without errors but it's not functioning properly.

Problems;
1) I set up my array to show me printout the random numbers after its been sorted, array[2] is way off. Everytme if run the code its always that location that has some crazy negative number.

2) My median formula is not working, i set it up so i sums up array[4] and [5] then divide it by two, thus getting the median.

3) i don't know how to set it up so the user can call a location for the value.

All help is appreciated.
Thanks

1) Use standard std::sort function:
 12345 #include //... std::sort(number, number + end); //Note that there isn't subscript operator ([]) here. We are passing pointers here. //...

2) you are using modulus operator, not division. Correct:
 median = (number[4]+number[5]) / 2.0; //Note 2.0 here. It is here because C++ will use integer division if we leave just 2 here.

3) Please elaborate what do you want
Thanks.

For the third part,
The program will create an array of 10 random numbers.
1-10 of different values.

The user can then call for what value array[4] is,
Lets say its 12.
Then user can call to find out what value array[7] is. And so
on.

I think it's using a search function.
 12345678 std::cout << "enter array index, or 0 to exit: " int input; std::cin >> input; while( 0 < input && input <= 10 ) { std::cout << "value = " << number[input - 1] << std::endl; std::cout << "enter array index, or 0 to exit: " std::cin >> input; }
Thanks for the help.
Got it to work.
