For example, if you would like to get a series of numbers to calculate to get the average of the numbers in one program. The problem that repetition structure solve are: instead of just one number you can use any amount that you need to, the number can be very large, you can repeat it 10 times, 100 times or more without changing the code, like calculating grades for the whole class, and you can repeat an action while a certain situation is true (or until its false) for example, asking the user for their choice.
