    To elaborate on what Fordy is saying:

    What have you done this far?

    What code have you written?

    What ideas have you come up with?

    Nobody here is willing to help if you're not looking to put forth the effort first and foremost. So what have you got?

    I just briefly (~20 seconds) looked at the assignment.

    Few things jumped out at me.

    Console.WriteLine - that's a C# function IIRC, it also mentions "methods" - methods are a C#/Java thing, the equivalent in C++ to methods are member functions. So you're probably better off in the C# forum (not that I doubt anybody in here couldn't help you..) - but I digress, point being:

    You have to show some attempt, the work you've done, the progress you made, the SPECIFIC issues you're running into before asking a question. There's no use just posting the assignment in here saying "I need help" - we've all (most of us) been there, yeah, it sucks, yeah, nobody's going to do it for you.

    If you come up with a specific question, then ask it.

    Otherwise he even has specifics in there as to the control flow, what to print out, and the call trace.

    I guess the professor was so lousy he didn't even bother to mention what programming language the class was studying. Either that, or the OP must not have looked even through the first page or lecture. I think he's beyond help.

    I am going to lean towards that option. When I looked at the assignment the following jumped out at me:

    So, 3 guesses on what the OP has been doing in class......

    This thread should be closed on principle.

    Wow, I saw that, but assumed they were given the assignment BEFORE the class, and he was preparing.. Guess that was a pretty crappy assumption on my part. Don't know why, but the fact that he was IN the practical at the post moment, trying to get help, just didn't even occur to me.

    If that's the case, I really can't believe somebody would stoop that low - that's the ultimate low of cheating...that's not even borrowing code off a friend level cheating...holy ...........

    *baffled* ..
