this is a program that takes test scores from a user adds them up to get the average then displays the test scores in an asending order with the bubble sort. i have the code but i am at a loss if it is right and how to display it. sorry i am new to programing....

// This program Enter test scores and sort them in oder and Averages them

using namespace std;

int main()
double *score, total = 0, average;
int TestScores, count;

cout << "How many Test Scroes do you wish to enter ";
cin >> TestScores;
score = new double[TestScores]; // Allocate memory

// Get the Test Scores
cout << "Enter each students test scores.\n";
for (count = 0; count < TestScores; count++)
cout << "Student " << (count + 1) << ": ";
cin >> score[count];

//bubble sort
for (int i=0; i
for (int j=i; j
if (score[i] < score[j])
double tmpscore = score[i];
score[i] = score[j];
score[j] = tmpscore;


// Calculate the total Scores
for (count = 0; count < TestScores; count++)
total += score[count];

// Calculate the average Test Scores
average = total / TestScores;

// Display the results
cout << fixed << showpoint << setprecision(2);

cout << "Average Score: " << average << endl;

// Free dynamically allocated memory
delete [] score;

return 0;

I was a bit confused by your question and some of the code you posted appears to have been truncated (the for loops) and if you use the [code=auto:0] tags, it makes it much easier to read. What exact display problems are you having? Is it displaying the now sorted scores? Give us a bit more info and we can hopefully help.
