Input continuously collecting

This programs problem is that it will not allow more than one input and then it goes into no where land. If I do type a zero initially it takes me to the output statements. I'm to demonstrate the use of a method, that is why I'm averaging out my amount below and returning them to main.

I can't figure out why it won't continuously ask me to input a number until I input zero. Does the problem have something to do with my average method?

Thanks,
Heather

In your while loop you never change the value of data so the loop will never exit. (In the case of zero it never enters the loop) You need to move your prompt and calculation inside the loop and probably make it a do while loop

Thanks! I found a guy a work who knew JAVA scripting (I'm not sure what the difference is) and he said the exact same thing as you did about doing a DO WHILE loop. I'm so glad that you responded though because of all the notes I took from him that was one I forgot to write down.

Thanks!

Unlikely to be JAVAscripting. More likely JavaScript. A completely different language
