A new array is not guaranteed to be filled with all 0. 13 Referencing an Array • An array is used like any other variable as long as we use the index correctly. • For example, if we wanted to set the values in the array y: #define ARRAY_LEN 8 … int i = 0; … for (i = 0; i < ARRAY_LEN; i++){ y[i] = i * i; } 14 Referencing an Array (cont’d) • Array y would now contain the values: y[0] y y[1] y[2] y[3] y[4] y[5] y[6] y[7] 0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 • Examples of the array referencing: printf(“%d\n”, y[4]); printf(“%.1f\n”, s[2]); s[0] = s[1] + (double)y[1]; y[3] += 3; 15 Array Advantages One of the advantages of the use of an array is the ease of compu4ng the sum or product of the contents of the array. Summa4on MAX  ­ 1 ∑ xi can be wrigen using an array in a loop: i = 0 sum = 0; for( i=0; i < MAX; i++ ) { sum += x[i]; } 16 Array Advantages (cont’d) Products MAX ­1 ∏ xi can be wrigen using an array in a loop: i = 0 product = 1; for( i=0; i < MAX; i++ ) { product = product*x[i]; } 17 /* Program to Print a Table of Differences * Computes the mean and standard deviation of an arra...
