I have to create a program that accepts intergers and then displays a message box showing the original values, the total, and the percentage each value contibutes to the total. My question is how do I calculate the percentage each value contibutes to the total?
using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Windows.Forms;

using System.Text;
 

namespace Chp7Ex2

{

    class Program

    {

        static void Main(string[] args)

        {

            string inValue;

            int total = 0;

            Console.WriteLine("How many values will be entered: ");

            string sSize = Console.ReadLine();

            int arraySize = Convert.ToInt32(sSize);

            int [] input = new int[arraySize];
 

            for (int i=0; i < arraySize; i++)

            {

                Console.Write("Enter number {0}: ", i + 1);

                inValue = Console.ReadLine( );

                input[i] = Convert.ToInt32(inValue);

             }
 

            for (int i = 0; i < arraySize; i++)

            {

               total += input[i];

            }

            MessageBox.Show(total);

        }

    }

}

you can show you data as:

// after calculating total
string message = "";
for (int i = 0; i < arraySize; i++)
{
       message += string.Format("{0} ({1}%)\r\n", input[i], input[i] * 100 / total);
}
message += string.Format("Total: {0}", total);
MessageBox.Show(message);
0

Jaime's solution should work but if there are 3 values 12,12, 12 the % will just show 33% each time as round is not implemented where as it should show 33.33%

i have extended Jaimes solution further to take care of that too
			string inValue;

			int total = 0;

			Console.WriteLine ("How many values will be entered: ");

			string sSize = Console.ReadLine ();

			int arraySize = Convert.ToInt32 (sSize);

			int[] input = new int[arraySize];
 

			for (int i = 0; i < arraySize; i++)

			{

				Console.Write ("Enter number {0}: ", i + 1);

				inValue = Console.ReadLine ();

				input[i] = Convert.ToInt32 (inValue);

			}
 

			for (int i = 0; i < arraySize; i++)

			{

				total += input[i];

			}

			string message = "\r\n\r\n";

			for (int i = 0; i < arraySize; i++)

			{

				message += string.Format ("Input value no {0} : {1} having % contribution ({1}%)\r\n", i, input[i], Math.Round(input[i] * 100.00 / total, 2));

			}

			message += string.Format ("\r\nTotal: {0}", total);

			Console.WriteLine (message);

			

			

			Console.ReadLine();
