I am a newbie and was given an assignment by my instructor and a very brief lecture. I developed a good algorithm. Please review and see of you like what I have done so far.

Problem: Given the current time (hrs & minutes) on a 24-hr clock, add a whole # of hours and determine what the new clock reading is and how many days later it is. (Hint: Use /24 and %24, designate midnight as 0:00 hours instead of 24:00 hours, Ex - 17:30 + 37 hours is 6:30, two days later)

Here is my algorithm:

1 Prompt user for hours

2 store hours

3 prompt user for minutes

4 store minutes

5 prompt user for additional hours

6 store additional hours

7 calculate elapsed days

8 calculate new hours

9 display elapsed days

10 display new time

Oaky, I am identifying Hours, Minutes, Additional hours, and elapsed days as my variables!?

I can see that hours = 17; Minutes = 30; and Additional Hours = 37, do you agree?

I can disect a problem but I am having trouble with the code part of it.

int main()

{

//I figured out from reading my book how the output would be

cout << "Please enter hours:";

cin << Hours

return 0;

}

I would appreciate any comments and direction. I will keep reading.
