What should my For Loop say?

Can someone help me write this program in c++?

 Suppose a teacher weights the four exams he gives 10%, 25%, 30%, and 35%.
Write a program that reads ten sets of four grades, prints the weighted average of each set, and prints the unweighted average of each test. The number of students should be in a global constant.

I know I need to use a for loop, but I'm not sure how to write it. Can someone show me how to code this along with guiding me through the code?

How should you read those then sets?
How would you store it?

as it is 4 exams and 10 students you need two loops. an outer loop for the exams and an inner loop for the students and their grades

for (int e = 0; e < NUM_EXAM; ++e)
        for (int s = 0; s < NUM_STUDENT; ++s)

Open in new window

you could define the constants as const int above the loops.

you also could exchange the outer and inner loop (what doesn't make much difference for your program logic).

try to find out what kind of arrays you need to store the weights and the 4 times 10 grades you get as input.

if you are stuck you may post what you have so far and ask for help either with a compile error or simply how to proceed.
