I need to write a Pascal program that keeps a few statistics on the programs' input.
The program needs to input real numbers from the keyboard, one at a time, until the
number typed in is zero.  At that time, I need it to show the final results.  During the input
process, it needs to track how many items are positive and how many are negative, and add the input
value to an appropriate running total.  When the loop is overwith, it needs to print the following:

There were 5 positive values, average 17.2
There were 2 negative values, average -8.7

If the number of positive or negative values is zero, don't compute or print the average.

Example run:

Type value: 17
Type value: -8
Type value: 21
Type value:  0

There were 2 positive values, average  19.0
There were 1 negative values, average  -8.0

This is what I have so far but its not working,

number,PosSum,PosNumebrCount,NegSum,NegNumebrCount: integer;
    write('Enter a number (0 to quit): '); readln(Number);
    { Calculations, see later }
  until Number = 0;

  if Number > 0 then
      PosSum := PosSum + Number;
      PosNumebrCount := PosNumebrCount + 1;
    end else if Number < 0 then begin
      { negative left to you }

  if Number < 0 then
      NegSum := NegSum + Number;

      NegNumebrCount := NegNumebrCount + 1;
      end else if Number < 0 then begin
