I am trying to prompt the user to enter 26 integers(scores) and I want the integers to fall into the specefic category based on the  score the user entered. I want the user to be prompt to enter an integer 26 times. For example If  6 of the 26 scores falls in  the range1 category I would like the counter to be 6. For some reason when i ran it I got the wrong output data.
1 Student has a range below 24
0 Students have a range between 25-49
0 Students have a range between 50-74
and so on with the rest of all the values being 0
Whats wrong with my code?
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
 
public class myArray
{
    static Scanner console = new Scanner(System.in);
 
 
   public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
 
 
			int[] item = new int[26];
 
            int range1=0, range2=0, range3=0, range4=0, range5=0, range6=0, range7=0,range8=0;
            int index;
            System.out.println("Enter 26 numbers");
            for (index =0; index < item.length; index++)
                item[index] = console.nextInt();
 
 
                if (item.length <=24)
                    range1++;
                else if (item.length >= 25  && item.length <=49)
                    {
                    range2++;
				    }
                else if (item.length >= 50 && item.length <=74)
                    {
                    range3++;
				    }
                else if(item.length >= 75 && item.length <=99)
                    {
                   range4++;
			        }
                else if(item.length >= 100 && item.length <=124)
				    {
				    range5++;

				    }

>                 if (item.length <=24)

you are comparing the wrong value, should be:

                if (item[index] <=24)

same for all the other comparisons

Hi,

you seem to mixing your lengths and elements, item.length, if I remember correctly returns the number of elements in an array, you probably want to change all your tests to something like (for example)

                else if (item[index] >= 50 && item[index] <=74)

Cheers

Hi again when I ran the program this time. I got in error message in the command window that says Exception thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutofboundsException: 26.
press any key to continue

The println output didn't even display.

make sure you aren't incrementing index inside your loop

need to include the if/else in your loop (by adding braces)

            for (index =0; index < item.length; index++)
            {
                item[index] = console.nextInt();


                if (item[index] <=24)
                    range1++;
                else if (item[index] >= 25  && item[index] <=49)
                    {
                    range2++;
                            }
                else if (item[index] >= 50 && item[index] <=74)
                    {
                    range3++;
                            }
                else if(item[index] >= 75 && item[index] <=99)
                    {
                   range4++;
                          }
                else if(item[index] >= 100 && item[index] <=124)
                            {
                            range5++;
                            }
                        else if(item[index] >= 125 && item[index] <=149)
                            {
                            range6++;
                            }
                else if(item[index] >= 150 && item[index] <=174)
                            {
                            range7++;
                            }
                else if(item[index] >= 175 && item[index] <=200)
                            {

The program is only accepting 1 number then the system.out.println executes instead of 26  numbers. How do I create a loop that goes through until all numbers are entered  instead of just one number.

Actually, I don't see why a Java array is needed in this case. You can process each score right away when the user inputs, like this:

int N = 26;
int item = 0;

for (int i=0; i<N; i++) {
      item = console.nextInt();

      if (item <= 24)
            range1++;
      // etc...
}

You need to change the item.length within the for loop to item[index]. The item.length will alway return 26 which is what you r result is in the current code.

You don't need all those if statements:
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
 
public class myArray {
    static Scanner console = new Scanner(System.in);
 
    public static void main(String[] args) {
 
	int[] item = new int[8];
 
	int range1 = 0, range2 = 0, range3 = 0, range4 = 0, range5 = 0, range6 = 0, range7 = 0, range8 = 0;
	int index;
	System.out.println("Enter 26 numbers");
	for (index = 0; index < 26; index++) { // Don't actually use this magic number 26
	    int range = console.nextInt() / 25;
	    if (range < item.length) { // (discard out-of-bounds)
		item[range]++;
	    }
	}
	// Display however you see fit
	System.out.println(java.util.Arrays.toString(item));
    }
}
