    yes he wants us to spell out the algorithms. there is only one other programming course that is lower than this one and it is PASCAL

    This is becoming ridiculous.
    Search the web, read the sticky announcement on top of this forum about homework and follow it. Those are the rules.

    You seem to be waiting to get lucky and have someone hand feed you the solutions. That won't happen.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Hmm, never dabbled in pascal, I know C and a little Visual Basic ( and C++ of course )
    I cant think what pascal is used for, Java is scripts and the internet, as is XML

    But I would think implementation of those things come out in a more advanced course such as data structures. We wrote useless junk in programming 1-2 (Look, I programmed a horse). Then we wrote useless programs in Data structures that at least do something.

    have you tried looking at the book nesagsar

    oh, no. that was just in reference to me not wanting to do math.

    Seriously Im not a lazy person, just joking. EMTs dont have the time for laziness.

    No matter how silly somthing seems, you are always adding to your knowlege. As the old saying goes, we all learn somthing new everyday

    As I have said there is no book. Also I dont know anything about PASCAL except that it has a lower course number and is supposedly easier than the C++ class.

    I dont want to cheat. I want to understand enough to get through with at least a C. After I am done with this crappy class I will probably start having fun with what Ive learned (it always seems to happen that way), untill then I want to get through it.

    You seem to have the desire to want to learn and you want to get things done properly, yet in that statement I get the impression you do not care about what you are learning. I hope I am wrong in this assumption. If I am not, then what ever you learn later, be it on a higher course or a harder langauge like C#, understanding basic syntax will be more difficult if you fail to understand the stuff you have already been taught

    You're in an introductory C++ course, you have no learning material, your teacher is giving you advanced work. Who's cheating whom? Granted you could be a little active in your own learning (buy a book, google, wiki information, tutorial sites). You're basically showing us you're willing to do nothing to pass the class. Osmosis works for water, not education.

    I love computers (mostly networking and HTML) but this class was designed so poorly that I just cant understand what Im supposed to do.

    You have three choices:

    1 Talk to your instructor and explain the problems you are having and agree on a solution

    2 Buy a beginners book and learn language concepts

    3 Keep looking at online resources and ask on here for help and support. But you have to help yourself before we can help you

    You can answer your question by yourself just reading that post:
    http://cboard.cprogramming.com/annou...t.php?f=3&a=39
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    No, you're on the wrong course.

    This thread is a week old, you've had 17 posts and none of them have contained a single line of code.

    I mean, if you regard question 1 as being in any way advanced then you really are lost. That's just simple junior school maths. At the very least you should have been able to manage a 'cout' to prompt for input, and a 'cin' to read a value for metres. It would have showed you were trying, but we didn't even get that.

    > BTW, I absolutly suck at math and have avoided it so far in my classes
    Further evidence that programming is not for you. There's not a lot you can do in C or C++ (or any other true programming language) before the maths starts to appear.

    BTW, HTML does not count as programming, despite the 'L' meaning language.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
