when I enter this, "double percentEvens = (numEvens / numCount) * 100;" after my program has registered the number of evens and the count, it always gives me an output of 0.0%.....?

It looks like "integer division" strikes again...

What data type is numEvens?  What type of data is numCount?  Are they both integers?  If so, what happens when you divide them?
