use array of scores to calculate an average

need help with a project I am working on to help a former teacher....

she needs to use java to make a program using array of scores to calculate a average:

**requirements**: function must be called scores ; must have at least 6 scores ; will need a variable to hold the sum of the scores ; have a loop that will go through the array and add up the total of all scores in array ; then calculate the average and only display that to the screen

does anyone have any ideas? i have never done a program like this but am wanting to help her if I can.

This is what I have so far...no idea if its anyway correct

<body>

<p> Average: <span id="output"></span></p>

<script type="text/javascript">

var scores [];

function addScores() {

'use strict' ;

var scores = document.getElementById('scores');

var output = document.getElementById('output').value=scores[i];

// End of scores() function.

window.onload = scores;

</script>

Re: use array of scores to calculate an average

Wrong forum. This one is for java.
