Question description

So here is the program I have to complete:

Homework 7 asks you to write a program to find out how many words in a file are among the most common words in the english language. I am providing a file with the 1000 most common english words in alphabetic order (1000words.txt).

Your program will prompt the user for the name of a file to check, for example 1984.txt, and the program will read in words from that file one at a time and check if each word is among the 1000 most common words. If so, you will count it. The program will display the total number of words in the file, the percentage of words that are in the 1000 most common, and the percentage of words not in the 1000 most common.

The program must have a vertical bar chart showing the percentage of words in versus the percentage of words not in the 1000 most common.

----------------------------------------------

I think I have the common words in an array correctly, i'm just stuck on how to count the common words versus the non common words if that makes sense?
