    I apologise if im posting this in the wrong area.
    I'm using Visual Studio and trying to write a small program that takes an array, sorts it in ascending order and then calculates average, mode and median of those values.
    So far i have sorted it using selective sort, calculated the average but am struggling with the mode and median.
    This is what i have for my median function so far. I beleive the theory should work behind it.

    Code:
    double getMedian(int num[], int length )
    {
    	double value;
    	int position = 0;
    	value = 0;
    	if (length % 2 != 0)
    	{
    		position = (length / 2);
    		value = num[position];
    	}
    	else 
    	{
    		position = (length / 2);
    		value = (num[position]+num[position-1])/2;
    	}
    	return value;
    }

    So what is it DOING that you don't like? Are we to guess? Someone might; I will not. Also, learn how to put code tags around your own code. Poor Shabbir must be wearing his mouse out.

    Till everyone on this planet does not know how to put code inside the code tag.

    Moderation is a difficult job. :cool:
