Each data group for the file customer.dat contains a customer's name, address, gender, and balance due. I need a program that will create two separate files, male.dat and female.dat, with all the data for customers stored on the appropiate file. It will also have to print out the following:
total number of customers, number of males, number of females, average balance for males, and average balance for females.

Can I use the code in my other question? https://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?ta=pascal&qid=10302610

The basics are there.  Roughly

females := 0;
males := 0;
malebalance := 0;
femalebalance := 0;

while not eof(customerfile)
  readln(customerfile, name);
  readln(customerfile, address);
  readln(customerfile, gender);
  readln(customerfile, balance);
  if gender = 'M' then
      write(malefile, name);
      write(malefile, address);
      malebalance := malebalance + balance;
      write(femalefile, name);
      femalebalance := femalebalance + balance

you should be able to finish this off by calculating total number of customers and mean average balances.
