    Question 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


    <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;

    Wrong forum. This one is for java.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
