Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun

The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:

Long time the manxome foe he sought

So rested he by the Tumtum tree,

And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish

thought he stood,

The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,

Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,

And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?

Come to my arms, my beamish boy!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"

1.

Write a program to help carpente
rs. Sometimes measurements are given in terms of
yards, feet and inches. Your program will convert to all inches. When running, it will
prompt the user first for the yards, then the feet, then the inches. Assume all numbers are

print out the length in inches.

(1 yard = 3 feet, 1 foot = 12 inches)

2.

Write a program to do the reverse of program 1. It asks the user for a length in inches,
and breaks it up into yards, feet and inches.

3.

(Pro
-
challenge instead of problems 1 and 2) The user types in a length in feet and inches
such as 8’5” and the program types back 101”. Or if the user types 80” the program
types back 6’8”.

If the discriminant is negative, print out a message saying the roots are imaginary and stop.

If the discriminant is zero, print a message saying there is one real root, and then give
namely

b/2a.

If the discriminant is positive, print a message saying there are two real roots and then give their
values, namely:

r1 = (

b + √d)/(2a)

r2 = (

complex roots in the form a+bi.

Chapter

(retroactive pay raise).

2.

Write a program to evaluate
the area of a triangle, given the lengths of its sides.

Use the formula: a = √(s(s
-
a)(s
-
b)(s
-
c)) where s = (a+b+c)/2

Your program first gets the 3 sides from the user. It then checks to make sure it is a
triangle, namely it checks that the sum of an
y 2 sides is larger than the third side.

It then evaluates s and a, and outputs the area a.

2.

Write a program

which prints your name as a banner going from top to bottom. Choose
either your first or last name but it must have at least 5 letters. Write the code to print
each letter in a separate function. If a lette
r appears more than once in your name only
write the function for that letter once. The main() function will simply call the letter
functions one after the other to spell out your name.

For example, the function bannerL to print out the letter L could be

coded as follows:

void bannerL()

{

cout << endl;

cout << “*************
\
n”;

cout << “*
\
n”;

cout << “*
\
n”;

cout << “*

cout << endl;

}

3. (Pro
-
Challenge) Extend part 2 so that instead of always printing '*' the user is asked to enter the
symbol to print. The main() function passes the symbol as a parameter to the functions
which print each letter.

1.

Write a function to compute the greatest common divisor of two integers using Euclid’s
algorithm. Write a driver to test the function.

Euclidean algorithm

from Wikipedia

The
Euclidean algorithm

(also called
Euclid's algorithm
) is an extremely efficient
algorithm

to
determine the
greatest common divisor

(GCD) o
f two
integers
. It is the oldest algorithm known. It
is described in
Euclid
's
Elements
. The algorithm does not require
factoring
.

Given two natural numbers
a

and
b
, first check if
b

is zero. If yes, then the GCD is
a
. If no,
calculate
c
, the remainder after the division of
a

by
b
. Replace
a

with
b
,
b

with
c
, and start the
process again.

For example, the GCD of 1071 and 1029 is computed by this algorithm to be 21 with the
following steps:

a

b

c

1071

1029

42

1029

21

21

The algorithm can be formulated in the
Python programming language

as follows:

def gcd(a,b):

while b != 0:

c = a%b

a = b

b = c

return abs(a)

Write

a student billing program. Student information is kept in an input file. The file has 3
fields, last name, first name, hours. Here is an example:

Smith Alice 15 Jones Fred 10 Wang Phil 20

The billing system is as follows:

A regular load is from 12

An overload is more than 18.0 hours. The student is billed \$7,000 for a regular load plus
\$400 for each excess hour over 18.0.

An underload is less than 12 hours. The student is billed \$450 per hour.

Output is to

last name, first name Example: Smith, Alice

hours

The report should be pr
