``````average = total / count
while PEnd !="Q" :
total = total + value
average = 0.0
value = int(input("Enter an input value: "))
total = total + value
count = 1
value = int(input("Enter an input value: "))
PEnd = input("Enter character Q to quit or any other character to continue:
")
PEnd = " "
PEnd = input("Enter character Q to quit or any other character to continue: ")
total = 0
count = count + 1
print("The average is: ", average)
``````

Anyone know how to rearrange this code so that when the values that are inputted are 3 4 8 4 , the average is 4.75. have tried rewriting it and getting average as 2 with code below and 4 when count = 0

here's my try:

``````PEnd = " "
while PEnd !="Q" :
value = int(input("Enter an input value: "))
average = 0.0
total = 0
count = 1
total = total + value
count = count + 1
average = total / count
PEnd = input("Enter character Q to quit or any other character to continue: ")

print("The average is: ", average)
``````

break your program into its parts

1. get a bunch of integers from the user
2. average those numbers
3. print the result

It helps me to actually break my program into its logical components so i would start with just getting a list of numbers

``````import re
def get_ints():
while True:
user_input = input("enter a number or numbers(or nothing to quit)")
if not user_input:
break
for a_number in re.findall("\d+",user_input):
yield int(a_number)
a_bunch_of_numbers = list(get_ints())
# you could enter 1 number at a time or a list of numbers seperated by non-numbers
print(a_bunch_of_numbers) # looks right :)
``````

assuming(and verifying) that part works i move on to the next part of creating the average

``````average = sum(a_bunch_of_numbers)/len(a_bunch_of_numbers)
# or numpy.mean(a_bunch_of_numbers)
``````

finally all i need to do is print the result

Try initializing the variables before you start your while loop (see below).

``````PEnd = " "
count = 0
total = 0
while PEnd !="Q" :
value = int(input("Enter an input value: "))
total += value
count += 1
PEnd = input("Enter character Q to quit or any other character to continue: ")
average = total / count

print("The average is: ", average)
``````

### I think it's a basic question but I don't get why I get 0 in this function

I'm wondering why I get 0 for the print(a) call in the last lineI put 0 for the first loop of the add()function and it should return 1 and so on in the for loop

I have a variable called store_number that I pass in from my mainpy into a module called store_selector which increments the store number until it finds a valid store
