# I'm new to Arrays and Functions

 LaV Brown · August 1, 2015 What do you do if you want to use certain array positions for calculations or for printing. For example, if an array has 4 places and you want to use the data in position 4 to either use in a formula for calculations or printing just that position, how would you code it at that point in the function?

Therefore sum = 4``Get that? Sha Kal · August 2, 2015 Trying to figure out haha. Tho i don't know what you are trying to do but i am sure there is much easier way to it. If you wanna share piece of code or something here, i'd like to help you if i can, i mean, i am still learning as well but i have got much farther than arrays. Jon Z. · August 2, 2015 I'm not sure what you are trying to ask, but to access the 4th element in an array``array[3] = value;//for 1st element array[0]//for 2nd element array[1]//...`` Dol Lod · August 2, 2015 I don't get the question.To access data in the fourth position in the array going from 0 ... length-1, you use brackets.I.e. element 4 would be array[3] where array was declared.
