Ok my assignment for class is to use the percent mod to calculate the total number of all the numbers and the total number of even numbers only. This should be done by using the user's input of their number.

the % "mod" operator

Input:

The first line of input will be a random list of integers the user will put it.

Output:

Return the total integers in the list and count of even integers.

Sample:

Input Output

3 4 10 12 1 0 6 78 7 #total: 9

#even: 6

...............................................................

this is what I got so far

the % "mod" operator

Input:

The first line of input will be a random list of integers the user will put it.

Output:

Return the total integers in the list and count of even integers.

Sample:

Input Output

3 4 10 12 1 0 6 78 7 #total: 9

#even: 6

...............................................................

this is what I got so far

Your for loop appears broken. Take a step back and write down in plain English what the program should do:

1) Read one line from user input

2) While the line has another integer:

2.1) Increase total count of integers

2.2) If the integer is even:

2.2.1) Increase total count of even integers

3) Print total count of integers and total count of even integers

Now solve each step separately. Test your program in between solving steps, and make sure it does what you expect it to do. For instance, print the line after step 1) to make sure it's the same as you've entered.

You seem to have trouble with step 2). Look in the Scanner class for a very useful method.

so i would have to use a while statement then an if statement but how to I implement the remainder or percent modulud operator? also would i have to do something specefically so that the program will be able to read more than one input the user puts in??? sorry this is my first programming class and first project of the semester...

Sandy, Scanner has a very useful method called hasNextInt().

Here's an almost complete solution:
