    You'll need every word you'll want to print. Seventeen, sixty, eight, forty, etc. The idea hasn't changed since you got it right two posts ago. Divide.

    Missed one: that should be a divide by 10 in the twenty, not a divide by 100.

    I don't know what else to say except you've already posted the example. But just because:
    Code:
    int number = 4321;
    int thousands = number/1000;
    int hundreds = (number%1000)/100;
    int tens = (number%100)/10;
    int ones = number%10;
    
    if (thousands == 1)
        printf("One");
    else if (thousands == 2)
        printf("Two");
    else if (thousands == 3)
        printf("Three");
    else if (thousands == 4)
        printf("Four");
    else if (thousands == 5)
        printf("Five");
    else if (thousands == 6)
        printf("Six");
    else if (thousands == 7)
        printf("Seven");
    else if (thousands == 8)
        printf("Eight");
    else if (thousands == 9)
        printf("Nine");
    if (thousands)
        printf(" thousand ");
    et cetera.

    but they want it in this format:
    Enter year and month: 1980 2
    nineteen hundred eighty
    has three hundred and sixty six (366) days
    February has 29 days
    % ./assn1
    Enter year and month: 1980 3
    nineteen hundred eighty
    has three hundred and sixty six (366) days
    March has 31 days
    % ./assn1
    Enter year and month: 2000 2
    twenty hundred
    has three hundred and sixty six (366) days
    February has 29 days

    So if you had read the example that would be a long, but trivial, change.

    That implies that you should break it up into: hundreds, tens, ones.

    but i break it into hundreds it might be convienet for years from 1700-1900
    but let say 8999 it will be hard doing hundreds

    It is as hard as doing 89.

    There are two possible solutions that come to mind. One involves a massive bunch of if-else statements to handle the numbers from 0 to 99 inclusive. This would be used first for the century, and then for the decade and individual year. The other solution is to check if the first number is a 1. If it is, then you use "ten", "eleven" etc. If not, you just use "twenty", "thirty" etc.

    I am not sure whether you are supposed to use character arrays for your assignment, but nevertheless, all you need is

    Code:
    const char *unitStr[10] = {     // string constants for unit places
            "Zero", "One", "Two", "Three", "Four", "Five", "Six", "Seven", "Eight", "Nine"
        };
    
        const char *teenStr[10] = {     // string constants for teen numbers
            "Ten",
            "Eleven",
            "Twelve",
            "Thirteen",
            "Fourteen",
            "Fifteen",
            "Sixteen",
            "Seventeen",
            "Eighteen",
            "Nineteen",
        };
    
        const char *tenStr[10] = {      // string constants for tens places
            "Zero",
            "Ten",
            "Twenty",
            "Thirty",
            "Forty",
            "Fifty",
            "Sixty",
            "Seventy",
            "Eighty",
            "Ninety",
        };
    then, get the hundreds, tens and ones part of the year
    Code:
    hundreds = number/100;
    tens = (number % 100)/10;
    ones = (number %100)%10;
    From this point onwards, you need a bunch of if statements to see if the variable hundreds is single digit, b/w 11 and 19 (inclusive) or greater than 19 to get the appropriate output string :-). The same logic goes with tens and ones.

    I am tempted to post my code but its against homework rule

    thx for the reply
    ...apparently we can only use a lot of if statements so i think we aren't allow to use character array
    so so far im stuck on how to do a year like 1782 using only IF and IF else statemtns
    any examples will be GREATLY appreicated... im wasting far 2 much time on this

    break the year 1782 into hundreds, tens and ones (as shown in my previous post)
    Code:
    break the year 1782 into hundreds, tens and ones (as shown in my previous post)
    if(hundreds == 17)
    	printf("Seventeen Hundred");
    	
    if(tens == 8)
    	printf(" and Eighty");
    	
    if(ones == 2)
    	printf(" Two");
    but this is only for 1782
    you would be doomed if you follow this approach coz you have to deal with a lot many years

    good luck
