INSTRUCTIONS TO STUDENTS
1. This assignment contains only ONE (1) question that is set in the language of the printed module for the course.
2. Answer in _______ or English.
3. Download the language version of the assignment template concerned from the MyVLE for preparation and submission of your assignment. Your assignment should be typed using 12 point Times New Roman font and 1.5 line spacing.
4. Your assignment should be between 2500 to 3000 words excluding references. The number of words should be shown at the end of your assignment. Do not copy the assignment question and instructions to your answer.
5. You must submit your assignment ON-LINE via the MyVLE. Refer to the portal for instructions on the procedures to submit your assignment on-line. You are advised to keep a copy of your submitted assignment for personal reference.

Short answers
5. What two things must you normally specify in a variable declaration?
You must specify the variable type and an identifier.
int n; // type - int, identifier - n
6. What value is stored in uninitialized variables?
is a variable that is declared but is not set to a definite known value before it is used.
Algorithm workbench
3. Write assignment statements that perform the following operations with the variables a, b, and c.
a. Adds 2 to a and stores the result in b
b. Multiplies b times 4 and stores the result in a
c. Divides a by 3.14 and stores the result in b
d. Subtracts 8 from b and stores the result in a
Assignment statements that perform operations with the variables a, b, and c* (*Actually none of these operations involves the variable c at all... is this an error, or a 'trick answer'?):
b = a + 2
a = b * 4
b = a / 3.14
a = b – 8
4. Assume the variables result, w, x, y, and z are all integers, and that w = 5, x = 4, y = 8, and z = 2. What value will be stored in result in each of the following statements?
a. Set result = x + y
b. Set result = z * 2
c. Set result = y / x
d. Set result = y – z
result = x++ - y;
Answer -4
result = 4 – 8 = -4
result = ++w + y;
Answer
w = w + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
result = 6 + 8 = 14
5. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable cost so it can hold real numbers.
Declare Real price= 0.00
Display "the original price."
Input item original price

Two Variable Inequalities

TWO VARIABLE INEQUALITIES
For this assignment, I am going to work with two-variable inequalities and demonstrate the practical application of these inequalities. I am going to use a graph that shows the number of TV’s on the left side and the number of refrigerators on the bottom. Of course this would mean that my x axis is the bottom, and my y axis on the left. The line shows the combination of TV’s and refrigerators that the truck can hold.
The problem I am going to work on is #68 on page 539 . The 18 wheeler truck can hold 330 TV’s with no refrigerators, or 110 refrigerators and no TV’s. When studying this graph, imagine that the triangle region is shaded, and that it represents any given number of coordinates that is in the shaded area is a combination of TV’s and refrigerators that will fit in the truck.
Because there are two points on the graph, I can figure out the slope of the line.
So our slope is -3/1
I can now use this slop in point-slope form to write an equation. When we are finished, we will arrive at our linear inequality.
Our point-slope form equation
Replace the slope with-3/1 and (330,0) for the x and y
Add 330 to both sides using the distributive property
Multiply both sides by 1, then add 3x to both sides
Change the equal sign to a less than...

Unit 5 Assignment 1: Homework
1.) Design an if-then statement that assigns 20 to the variable y and assigns 40 to the variable z if the variable x is greater than 100. (Simple if statement)
If x > 100 then
Y=20
Z=40
End if
2.) Design an if-then statement that assigns 0 to the variable b and assigns 1 to the variable c if variable a is less than 10. (Simple if statement)
3.) Design an if-then-else statement that assigns 0 to variable b if variable a is less than 10, otherwise it should assign 99 to variable b. (Alternative if statement)
If a < 10 then
B = 0
Else
B = 99
End f
4.) The symbols >, <, and == are all Relational operators.
5.) The if-then statement is an example of a conditioal structure.
6.) The Selection structure is based on boolean logic.
7.) The if-else statement is know as a dual alternative decision structure.
8.) A nested if statement is used to ask multiple questions before deciding what processing path to take.
