    Need a C program that has a declaration in main () to store the following numbers into an array named rates:2.3,3.3,4.4,5.5,6.0. There should be a function call to show () that accepts rates in a parameter named rates and then displays the numbers using the pointer notation *(rates + i).

    If I understand correctly, you are asking how a program can be created that
    1. Declares and stores four(4) real numbers.
    2. Calls another function called show() which
    2a. Accepts the parameter named rates and
    2b. Displays the parameter ( the array in main() ) by some print function and using pointer notation *(rates+i)
    You require an understanding of pointers and how to pass and receive parameter by reference in order to solve this fairly straightforward problem.

    Please understand that under Brainmass guidelines I am prevented from giving you a straightforward result or solution. However I can provide you with snippets of code examples that will show you how to deal with pointers in a function. I will also like to keep the given ...
