Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i posted it there under my screenname on here.... the instructions are Your program should output each candidate’s name, the number of votes received by that candidate, and the percentage of the total votes received by the candidate. Your program should also output the winner of the competition. Sample output is as follows: Finalist Votes Received % of Total Votes Johnson 5000 25.91% Miller 4000 20.72% Duffy 6000 31.09% Robinson 2500 12.95% Anthony 1800 9.33% Total 19300 The winner of the competition is Duffy. Specifications and Notes: Use the file specified above for input and the console for output. Main should primarily call methods to perform tasks. You should AT A MINIMUM have methods that do the following: 1. getVotes which reads the names and votes into parallel arrays 2. sumVotes which accepts the array of votes, a count of how many competitors were read in and returns the total votes 3. processVotes which accepts the array of votes, a count of how many items are in the array, an integer representing the total votes and fills a second array with the percentage votes for each finalist 4. determineWinner which determines the winner of the competition – you decide what needs to be sent in and returned.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You don't seem to have any of the methods they describe above, and you're not actually storing the votes as you read them in.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You should have a method called getVotes that reads the votes from a file

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure what your input file looks like so I can't tell if you're doing that right, but it seems as though you are except you're not doing anything with the number you read in from the file.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i kno the way it is is the only way i could get it to print the stuff from the file. i can copy and paste the plain file text

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i completely suck at this and have no idea how i have gotten as far as i have in this class with a b but methods and arrays(ie these last two sections ) are kicking my butt

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, well you can think about arrays as variables that hold many values. In this case you'll want to have 2 arrays one for the name, and the other for the number of votes that candidate recieved.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then you can organize them such that the ith element in the name array corrisponds to the ith element of the votes array.
