Arithmetic Operations

To calculate the grade from the midterm and final exams we must divide (midterm+final) by 2. If we use midterm+final/2, it will find the midterm plus half of the final.explanation

Build the form as shown below:

Horizonal Scroll Bars

  Name:  HsbMidterm
  LargeChange = 1
  
  Name:  HsbFinal
  LargeChange = 1

Labels

  Name:  LblInstructions
  Text = "Select the number of eggs:"
  
  Name:  LblMidterm
  Text = "Midterm: 0"
  
  Name:  LblFinal
  Text = "Final: 0"

  Name:  LblAverage
  Text = "Average: 0" 

Write the code as shown below:

'Programmer: Janet Joy
'Select midterm and final grades to see average
Public Class Form1
    Private Sub HsbMidterm_Scroll(sender As Object, e As ScrollEventArgs) Handles HsbMidterm.Scroll
        'Display midterm grade and calculate average
        Me.LblMidterm.Text = "Midterm: " & Me.HsbMidterm.Value
        Dim average As Double = (Me.HsbMidterm.Value + Me.HsbFinal.Value) / 2
        Me.LblAverage.Text = "Average: " & average
    End Sub

    Private Sub HsbFinal_Scroll(sender As Object, e As ScrollEventArgs) Handles HsbFinal.Scroll
        'Display final grade and calculate average
        Me.LblFinal.Text = "Final: " & Me.HsbFinal.Value
        Dim average As Double = (Me.HsbMidterm.Value + Me.HsbFinal.Value) / 2
        Me.LblAverage.Text = "Average: " & average
    End Sub
End Class

Remember, you should try doing each of these programs on your own. Get it to work, break it, modify it, and then try to write it on your own!
