iOS Objective-C Basics (Retired) Pointers and Memory Array Size and Length

I have no idea how to do this ...

Am I going to someone divide the byte sizes? Where do I start?

array_length.mm
float real_numbers[] = {1.1, 2.2, 3.3, 4.4, 5.5}; 

printf("Array real_numbers is %ld bytes.", (sizeof(real_numbers)); 

It's asking me to find how many items there are using "sizeof()" ...

1 Answer

You find the length by dividing the sizeof the array by the sizeof a float

printf("Array real_numbers can store %ld items.", sizeof(real_numbers) / sizeof(float));
