# Thread: help w/function

1. ## help w/function

I need a function to determine if there are two numbers in an array of 10, whose sum is 100. The function will be called find. Here is the rest of my program:

int initialize(int array[], int size)
{
int i;
cout << "Enter ten integers: " << endl;
cin >> array[0];

for (i = 0; i < 10; i++)
cin >> array[i];

return 0;
}

int main()
{
int array[10];
initialize(array,10);

if (find(array,10))

return 0;
}

The main function must remain the same. I'm having difficulty trying to write a function to determine if two of 10 integers has a sum of 100.
Thanks in advance!!

2. for (i = 0; i < 10; i++)
cin >> array[i];

you are overwriting your array at position 0 here. Initialize i to 1.

Someone else might write the function for you. I will not. You need to deliver a little bit more. How are you going to step through the array to check the sum of two numbers and hit all the possible solutions (logically you should be able to figure that out... the coding we can help you with)?

3. >>>I'm having difficulty trying to write a function to determine if two of 10 integers has a sum of 100.
Code:
```a=10;
b=90;

if ((a+b)==100)
return 1;
else
return 0;```

4. The evil way:

Code:
```register int t;
register int i;

for (t = 0; t < 10; ++t) {
for (i = 0; i < 10; ++i) {
if (array[t] + array[i] == 100)
return (1);
}
}
return (0);```

5. What does the register prefix do to the ints? Does it set the values as an asm type register??

what is the register keyword?

7. ## here's more info

I realized my error in the first part of your reply :
"for (i = 0; i < 10; i++)
cin >> array[i];
"
Thanks.

I figured I could set up two arrays. The first would be the input acquired in the initialize array. The second array would be 100-amount in 1st array. If there is a match in 1st and 2nd line - ie. each line have 40 - those two positions equal 100. IE:

20 40 15 60 29
80 60 85 40 71

the second position in 1st array and 4th position in 2nd array match, so 2nd and 4th position in 1st array = 100.

problem is - i'm having a heck of a time figuring this out. My code is so off right now it's not worth posting. hopefully i'll have something postable soon.....please help!!

8. A register variable is a type of local variable. The register keyword tells the compiler “make accesses to this variable as fast as possible.” Increasing the access speed is implementation dependent but, as the name suggests, it is often done by placing the variable in a register. There is no guarantee that the variable will be placed in a register or even that the access speed will increase. It is a hint to the compiler.

There are restrictions to the use of register variables. You cannot take or compute the address of a register variable. A register variable can only be declared within a block (you cannot have global or static register variables). You can, however, use a register variable as a formal argument in a function (i.e., in the argument list).

Generally, you shouldn’t try to second-guess the compiler’s optimizer, since it will probably do a better job than you can. Thus, the register keyword is best avoided.

9. Register suggest to the compiler it should place the variable in the computer's register memory. On some compilers it's a bit of a performance enhancer for counter variables (that will be incremented/decremented a lot).

And yes, it is not the best to use ; )

Nah... just do it like rmullen gave away. (though there is a problem with it) Take the first value and compare it to values 2-10. Take the second value and compare it with 1 and 3-10 etc etc.

rmullen's wouldn't work right if one of the values was 50 because it would loop by itself and create a value of 100...

That is close to what you want though.

11. ## getting closer...

Ok, this is what I have. Problem now, it keeps looping. I am getting some positive finds when I input 2 #'s that equal 100, and alot of "sorry..." How can I get it to check all, but print out only one time. THanks in advance!!

I didn't type that... it is a quote. I knew nothing about it.

13. ## forgot to post code

#include<iostream.h>

int find (int array [], int size)

{
int t;
int i;

for (t = 0; t < 10; ++t)
{
for (i = 0; i < 10; ++i)
{
if (array[t] + array[i] == 100)
cout << "The numbers equal 100.\n";
else cout << "Sorry, I cannot find 2 numbers whose sum is 100.\n";
}
}

return (0);
}

int initialize(int array[], int size)
{

int i;
cout << "Enter ten integers: " << endl;

for (i = 0; i < 10; i++)
cin >> array[i];

return 0;
}

int main()
{
int array[10];

initialize(array,10);

if (find(array,10))

return 0;
}

and that is the other issue. Once it finds one value, you want it to continue until the entire array is processed. There may be more than two numbers that add up to 100. Several things to think about.

***edit****

use code tags when you post code.

[ code ]

your code

[ /code ]

without the spaces between the brackets....

15. Thanx, that's what I thought but I wasn't sure.
