    I am having problem

    Use array to write a program that will count the numbers of vowels in a sentence that the user will enter

    First start by opening your favorite IDE (if you use one)

    Let me know once you have done this and I will tell you the next step

    The hard part is going to be the logic behind how to determine if y is a vowel or not. In words like WHY it is, in words like YES it is not. I would recommend a lookup table of the common words where Y is a vowel and then do a "best guess" algorithm for words not in your little dictionary. Something like a proximity to vowel (the true rule is based on the sound of the word, which is not easy to implement) such that if a Y is close to a vowel, it is not a vowel, if it is far (3 letters?) from a vowel, it is one? Or, as a cheap alternative, offer two or more counts --- "This sentence has 8 vowels and 2 Ys which could be vowels in the words yellow, why for a total of 8,9, or 10 vowels". Complex, but it provides the user with the information needed.

    Any suggested use of the array(s)? Is this a six element array in which you increment the element of the vowel array you have currently identified.

    The most important methods you'll need to provide will be the capture of the text being evaluated,the processing of the string captured, and then the reporting of results.
