    Unhappy creating a rainfall class

    Write a RainFall class that stores the total rainfall for each of 12 months into an array of
    doubles. The program should have methods that return the follow ing;
    the total rainfall for the year
    the average monthly rainfall
    the month with the DOM rain
    the month with the least rain

    Help? Sure we can help.

    Do it for you. NO!

    What have you done? Post your code. Do you get errors when compiling/running? Post the exact message. Finally ask a specific question. "I don't understand" is not specific and not a question.

    I never once said do it for me you tool, i clearly said I don't know where to begin I know this is the type of project that uses 2 classes a driver class and a method class the driver class will call upon the method class to execute the methods which gather user input from the user to get rain amount set rain amount etc. dont talk to me as if im inferior, talk to me with respect.

    What have you done so far? What specific problems are you having?
    It's hard to suggest anything unless we know where the problems are.
    For example:
    Do you know how to define a class?
    Do you know how to define a method?
    Do you know how to define an array?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    When people just post their assignment and no code that is the general implication we get.
    i clearly said I don't know where to begin
    Then you need to review the basics and maybe talk to your teacher. Online forums work best in helping students with specific problems (eg why a loop or if statement never executes) and not for hand holding.

    --- Update ---

    BTW if anyone generally doesn't know where to start then they should drop the subject.
    class Rainfall {
     
    }
    That is a start. Then continue building the program up bit by bit. Most students try to do the whole program at once and go "ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH! I don't know how to do that". A better approach is to break it down into smaller chunks and work on each chunk separately. make sure you compile your code often and fix all errors before moving on. Another mistake students make is to write 100+ lines of code and get numerous errors which are hard to fix because the code is such a mess.

    What does "assembled" mean?
    Have you answered these questions?
    What data goes in the array?
    Where does that data come from?
    How many different data elements are saved in the array?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
