﻿ C Program: Prints the average of all positive values

# C Exercises: Counts the number of positive numbers and print the average of all positive values

## C Basic Declarations and Expressions: Exercise-28 with Solution

Write a C program that reads 5 numbers, counts the number of positive numbers, and prints out the average of all positive values.

Pictorial Presentation:

C Code:

``````#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
float numbers[5], total=0, avg; // Declare an array to store 5 numbers, and variables for total and average
int j, pctr=0; // Declare variables for loop counter and positive count

// Prompt user for five numbers and store them in the array
printf("\nInput the first number: ");
scanf("%f", &numbers[0]);
printf("\nInput the second number: ");
scanf("%f", &numbers[1]);
printf("\nInput the third number: ");
scanf("%f", &numbers[2]);
printf("\nInput the fourth number: ");
scanf("%f", &numbers[3]);
printf("\nInput the fifth number: ");
scanf("%f", &numbers[4]);

for(j = 0; j < 5; j++) {
if(numbers[j] > 0) // Check if the number is positive
{
pctr++; // Increment positive count
total += numbers[j]; // Add positive number to total
}
}

avg = total/pctr; // Calculate average of positive numbers

// Print the counts of positive numbers and the average
printf("\nNumber of positive numbers: %d", pctr);
printf("\nAverage value of the said positive numbers: %.2f", avg);
printf("\n");

return 0;
}

``````

Sample Output:

```Input the first number: 5

Input the second number: 8

Input the third number: 10

Input the fourth number: -5

Input the fifth number: 25

Number of positive numbers: 4
Average value of the said positive numbers: 12.00
```
