    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    #include <cmath>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    
    // Global constants.
    // Your code should be written in such a way that it will
    // continue to work properly if these values are changed.
    const int minFoodPerDrop = 40,  // min food per drop
              maxFoodPerDrop = 60,  // max food per drop
              requiredFoodPerVillage = 100, // food each village must have
              maxVillages = 10,  // max number of villages
              tableEntries = 18,  // number of table entries
              landedInSea = -1;  // special value used to represent "landed in sea"
    
    
    // Simulates a single relief campaign and returns the number of drops
    // required to supply all of the villages.
    int simulateCampaign (int numberOfVillages) {
    
      int unitsReceived[maxVillages] = { 0 }, drops = 0,
          targetVillage, landingVillage;
    
      for (;;) {
    
        // Decide where the next drop should be targeted.
        targetVillage = pickTargetVillage (numberOfVillages, unitsReceived);
    
        if (unitsReceived[targetVillage] >= requiredFoodPerVillage) {
          // The village with the least amount of food has enough.
          // The campaign is complete.  Return the number of drops required.
          return drops;
        }
    
        // Work out where the drop will acually land.
        landingVillage = pickLandingVillage (numberOfVillages, targetVillage);
    
        if (landingVillage != landedInSea) {
          // The drop did not go into the sea.
          // Update the food received by the village where it landed.
          unitsReceived[landingVillage] += pickUsableUnits();
        }
    
        drops++;
    
      }
    
    }

    Ok, so your pdf file breaks it down for you. You can do this one step at a time. Try implementing the pickLandingVillage function, it's pretty simple. Can you at least write the function without the implementation?

    Pretty appropriate user name it seems.

    The problem with the code is it's exactly what was provided by the professor. Consider a new major, bud.
