This code is supposed to show the percentage of leading digits in an array and return another array. When I tested it, I kept getting the message that exception in thread main java.lang.arrayindexoutofboundsexception4. Could someone tell me why?

Solution 1

Hint: Look at this line
digitpercentage [p] = calculateLeadingDigit ((int) numbers [p])/numbers.length;
Your p value ranges from 0 to 9. But does numbers length varies same? You do numbers[p], is not there a possibility of index out of range?

Debug step wise and see how the execution is happening and what are the values assigned.

That's what he did. He recommended you to start using the debugger and I agree with him. It can help you find the errors and learn from them, what actually is the best way of learning
