Homework Help: C programming

Posted by E on Saturday, October 2, 2010 at 7:49pm.

Question: Write a program that reads integers from the keyboard until the user enters the sentinel value -999. The program should then print the minimum integer read, the maximum integer read and the average of all the integers. (Excluding the sentinel value -999)

I know how to post maxes & mins and set the sentinel value. I don't know how to tell the computer to sum up the values given and take the average since I need a generic function that would work for any number of values.

My code for everything else:

#include <stdio.h>

int main()

int num;
int min;
int max;
int avg;

printf("Enter a number (-999 to quit): ");

//putting the first number the user entered in variable min and max
min = num;
max = num;

min = num;

max = num;
printf("Enter another number (-999 to quit): ");

printf("\nThe smallest number entered is %d\n",min);
printf("\nThe largest number entered is %d\n",max);

return 0;
