Hey everyone. I'm typing up a program which prints out a calendar for any month and year (starting with 1 A D) which the user inputs. I found a general algorithm for calculating the first day of the month but when i cout it in my if statements, something's wrong. It prints out | | 1 no matter what B is equal to. The algorithm is

1) Subtract 1 from the year and store the result in a variable A.

2) Multiply A by 365

3) Find the quotient when you divide the (year - 1) by 4 (ignore remaindr) and add this to A

4) Find the quotient when you divide the (year - 1) by 100 (ignore the remainder) and subtract this from A.

5) Find the quotient when you divide the (year - 1) by 400 (ignore the remainder) and add this to A.

6) Add the days in the year prior to this month (dont worry about leap years here) to A.

7) Add 1 to A (for first day of month)

8) If the year is a leap year and the month is after February add 1 to A. Note: A year is a leap year if it is divisible by 4 AND if it is not a centennial OR it is a centennial divisible by 400.

9) Find the remainder when dividing A by 7

Here's my code so far:

I know the spacing is off in my cout statementsCode:// Calendar Project // Ez Nadar #include <iostream> using std::cin; using std::cout; using std::endl; int day(int year, int month); int daysbefore(int month); int main() { int month = 0, year = 0, d = 0, b = 0; cout << "Enter the year of the calendar" << endl; cin >> year; cout << "Enter the month of the calendar" << endl; cin >> month; d = daysbefore(month); b = day(year, month); if ( month == 12) cout << " " << "Calendar of December " << year << endl; if ( month == 11) cout << " " << "Calendar of November " << year << endl; if ( month == 10) cout << " " << "Calendar of October " << year << endl; if ( month == 9) cout << " " << "Calendar of September " << year << endl; if ( month == 8) cout << " " << "Calendar of August " << year << endl; if ( month == 7) cout << " " << "Calendar of July " << year << endl; if ( month == 6) cout << " " << "Calendar of June " << year << endl; if ( month == 5) cout << " " << "Calendar of May " << year << endl; if ( month == 4) cout << " " << "Calendar of April " << year << endl; if ( month == 3) cout << " " << "Calendar of March " << year << endl; if ( month == 2) cout << " " << "Calendar of February " << year << endl; if ( month == 1) cout << " " << "Calendar of January " << year << endl; cout << " ----------------------------------------- " << endl; cout << " | Sun | Mon | Tue | Wed | Thu | Fri | Sat |" << endl; cout << " ----------------------------------------- " << endl; if ( b = 0) cout << " | 1|"; else if ( b = 1) cout << " | | 1|"; else if ( b = 2) cout << " | | | 1|"; else if ( b = 3) cout << " | | | | 1|"; else if ( b = 4) cout << " | | | | | 1|"; else if ( b = 5) cout << " | | | | | | 1|"; else if ( b = 6) cout << " | | | | | | | 1|"; return 0; } int daysbefore(int month) // calculates days in the year before this month { int d = 0; if ( month == 12) d = 334; if ( month == 11) d = 304; if ( month == 10) d = 273; if ( month == 9) d = 243; if ( month == 8) d = 212; if ( month == 7) d = 181; if ( month == 6) d = 151; if ( month == 5) d = 120; if ( month == 4) d = 90; if ( month == 3) d = 59; if ( month == 2) d = 31; if ( month == 1) d = 0; return d; } int day(int year, int month) // determines first day of month { int a = 0, b = 0; a = year - 1; a = a * 365; a = a + ((year - 1) / 4); a = a - ((year - 1) / 100); a = a + ((year - 1) / 400); a = a + daysbefore(month); a = a + 1; if ( ( year % 100 ) != 0 ) if ( (year % 4) != 0 ) { a = a + 1; } b = (a%7); return b; }
