    iM NOT sure this is the right place, but i need help.......just wokeup to see a post my professor posted with extra credit on a test i probably got a 20/100 on, so plz help, its due in 1 hour suposedly......n e way heres the code.

    CodingBat getIQ

    Given a person's writing sample, estimate their IQ using the following algorithm. Sum the length of each word, multiply by 15, then divide by the number of words (truncate any fractional part). Assume words are separated by whitespace and that there is no punctuation.

    getIQ("i use short words") → 52
    getIQ("mississippi expectations exceed extraordinary") → 157
    getIQ("hello bye") → 60

    Thanks

    Could you post your code here instead of providing a link?

    Be sure to use code tags. See my signature if you're unsure how to do this.

    Also, what part of your code do you need help on? Are you getting an error? If so, please post the entire error message.

    edit: also, please don't ask your question in multiple topics. I've deleted the other one.

    Yeah, and we got that way by practicing. We didn't get that way by asking other people to do our work for us.

    You have several options. You could rephrase your question: How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
    You could read through the basic tutorials: java tutorials - Google Search
    Or you could fail. It's up to you.

    Many programmers are self-taught, so you have a leg up on them. Stop complaining. Ask a specific question. Post some code. Make an effort. Or fail.
