Ok, I am writing a program that deals with entering numbers. The program amongst other things also works out the average of the last 5 or 6 numbers entered or so - I havent decided how many yet... this will depend on how much free memory I have. Anyway, what I want to do is this - from the final 'average', I would like to work out some sort of value that I can enter into the pic the next time I power up, which will continue working out the entire average of the previous numbers plus any new numbers entered. Sort of like a sead value. Is this mathamatically possible or can averages only be worked out sort of 'number by number' so-to speak?
Do you all understand what I am going on about and if so can you help?
