In this assignment, you will design a program to perform the following task: Calculate the usable area in square feet of house. Assume that the house has a maximum of four rooms, and that each room is rectangular. Before attempting this exercise, be sure you have completed all of chapter 2 and course module readings, participated in the weekly conferences, and thoroughly understand the examples throughout the chapter. There are 3 main components of your submission including the problem analysis, program design and documentation, and sample test data. 1.Using a similar approach as example 2.3 (textbook page 75): “Finding the Sale Price of Items in a Department Store”, provide your analysis for the following problem statement:

You need to write a program that will calculate the number of square feet (living space) in a 4-room house. Your analysis should be clearly written and demonstrate your thought process and steps used to analyze the problem. Be sure to include what is the required output? What is the necessary input and how you will obtain the required output from the given input? Also, include your variable names and definitions. Be sure to describe the necessary formulas and sample calculations that might be needed.

2.Using a similar approach as the example provided in section 2.2(textbook page 78) for “The Sale Price Program continued”, provide your program design for the program you analyzed for calculating the number of square feet in a house. Be sure to describe the fundamental tasks needed to solve the problem so you can use a modular design. Provide pseudocode of your overall design that includes the Main module and the order of the module calls (see page 82 for an example). Finally, list all of your pseudocode for each module (See example 2.6 on page 83 as an example).

Include header and step comments in your pseudocode, using a similar approach as the example provided in section 2.3 (textbook page 86). See example 2.8 on pages...
