I am having a problem with finding percentage. When displaying output from math problems i need: # complete, Right, Wrong, and percentage right. All but percentage comes out correct. If all problems are correct it shows 100% anything else is 0%. What am I doing wrong.

cout << setw(17) << "Addition: " << setw(16) << TotalAddProb << setw(17) << AddCountRight << setw(11) << AddCountWrong << setw(11) << setprecision(2) << fixed << ((AddCountRight) / (TotalAddProb) *100) << "\n";

1 solution

Try changing this:
((AddCountRight) / (TotalAddProb) *100)

To this:
(AddCountRight * 100.0 / TotalAddProb)

In your version, you are performing integer division, so the result gets truncated to 0 then multiplied by 100 (the result of which is 0). In my version, I convert the integer to a floating point number, then perform the rest of the math (which avoids the integer division).
