Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Revisiting arrays, part of Up and Running with Java.
- In the segment on data types,…we introduced the concept of arrays.…Now we will expand on this concept…and review a few more examples.…What if you wanted to write a program…to find the average height of all students in a classroom?…To make the program more flexible,…we will ask the user to enter…how many students are in the class ahead of time,…and then use that value as the size of the array.…After all heights have been entered,…we can use a loop to find the height of the tallest student…and the average height for all students in the class.…
Let's give it a try.…Since we're asking the user to enter the heights,…I need to add, on line seven, my import statement,…import Java.util.scanner.…Now I'll go ahead and create a scanner object on line 18.…Okay. The first thing I wanna do is,…find out how many students are in the class.…Let's declare some variables.…We know that you can't have half a student,…so the data type for the number of students…should be an int.…Next we wanna create an array that will hold…all of the students.…
