I created a java program that deals with array but i got stuck on sorting the number in the array and getting the median from the sort can some help me out on this one.
import sort;

public class Random
public static void main (String[] args)
double total = 0;
double average = 0;
double[] number = new double[25];
for(int i = 0; i < 25; i++)
number[i] = (Math.random()*100+1);
total +=number[i];
average = total/25;
System.out.println("Average number in array: " + average);
Sorts.selectionSort (number[i]);
for (int index = 0; index < grades.length; index++)
System.out.println (number[i] + " ");

The code posted omits the bits that have to do with sorting. And what's there won't even compile with those number[i]s outside the for loop. This makes helping you very difficult...
