  • Program to calculate the mean, standard deviation and letter grades in C++?

    My task is: Letter grades are sometimes assigned to numeric scores by using the grading scheme commonly known as grading on the curve. In this scheme, a letter grade is assigned to a numeric score as follows (where m is the mean grade and sd is the standard deviation):

    Numeric Score Letter Grade

    <m-(sd*1.5) F

    between 0.5 and 1.5 * sd below mean D

    between 0.5*sd below and 0.5*sd above mean C

    between 0.5 and 1.5*sd above mean B

    >1.5*sd above mean A

    The mean is the sum of all the scores divided by the number of scores.

    Write a program to read in a list of real numbers, representing numeric scores storing them in a static array or a dynamic array (created using new), call functions to calculate the mean and standard deviation, and then call a function to calculate and display the letter grade & corresponding numeric score.

    I have the following:

    #include <iostream>

    #include <cmath>

    using namespace std;

    double calculate_mean_sd (int arrcal[], int num);

    double calculate_and_print_grades (int arrcal [], int num);

    int main (void)

    { int arrcal [10],

    num;

    cout<<"Please enter the number of scores that you would like to determine the grades for: ";

    cin>>num;

    for (int i=0; i<num; i++)

    {cout<<"Please enter a score: ";

    cin>>arrcal[i];}

    return 0;}

  • Linked list sorting in C programming?

    Hello,

    I am writing a program that queries a user for employee information such as a first name, last name, and a three digit employee id number. A struct and linked list are used to store the data. Traversing across the linked list occurs and the information of the employee with the highest id number is displayed.

    I am not very certain on how to go about coding a way to determine the employee with the highest id number and printing that out.

    I have the following:

    #include <stdio.h>

    #include <stdlib.h>

    #include <string.h>

    #define NO_EMP 4

    typedef struct employee

    { char fname [21];

    char lname [21];

    int id;

    struct employee *next;

    }DATA;

    DATA* insertit (DATA *first, char firstn[], char lastn[], int idnum);

    int main (void)

    {

    DATA *head,

    *p;

    char firstname[21];

    char lastname[21];

    int idnumber,

    j,

    k;

    char ch,

    nl;

    head=NULL;

    for (j=0; j<21; j++)

    firstname[j]=' ';

    for(k=0; k<NO_EMP; k++)

    { printf("Please enter the employee's first name: \n");

    scanf("%s", firstname);

    printf("Please enter the employee's last name: \n");

    scanf("%s", lastname);

    printf("Please enter the employee's three digit id number: \n");

    scanf("%d", &idnumber);

    scanf("%c", &nl);

    head=insertit(head, firstname, lastname, idnumber);

    for (j=0; j<21; j++)

    firstname[j]= ' ';

    }

  • INF in C language?

    Hello!

    I am writing a program in the C language for homework about calculating a monthly payment based on the following formula: (i*P)/(1-(1+i)^-n).

    I wrote the code and compiled it. However, when I attempted to execute the program, the monthly interest rate resulted in the value of inf.

    I am certain that inf means infinite, however, this value definitely should not be the answer.

    Please give a possible explanation to why the value is calculated to be inf.

  • Using pow function in C?

    Hello!

    I have to write a program using the formula:

    payment= (i*P)/(1-(1+i)^n).

    i= monthly interest rate

    P= principal or amount borrowed

    n= number of payments

    I was briefly taught that pow involves raising a number to a power with a simple example. However, now I am not so certain how to write the formula in C.

    I thought: payment= (i*P)/(1(pow(1+i,-n))

    Please explain the correct method of writing this formula in C.

  • Prom advice!! About dates!!?

    Hello, so I am going to the ball this spring. I have a friends who's name I will not say. I really like this friend--- he is amazing with his way of always making me smile no matter what is going in my life. He also wants to go to the ball and wants to ask a girl. He sits with me and another one of his friends at my lunch table. His friend mentioned twice that he was lonely and did not have a girlfriend. However, the actual boy does not say anything, he just eats his lunch, smiles, and stares at me when his friend mentions these things. The only thing the boy said once was that he was trying to find a girl and that he was going to ask one girl but she is really mean and does not really like him. This boy constantly tries to hug me too and smiles at me all of the time.

    So in your opinion, what do you think is going on? Do you think he is trying to ask me to the prom and does not know how? What do you think I should do? Please give me your honest opinion because my friends never give me a straight, honest answer of what they think.

    Thank you so much! I will take all opinions in mind! I appreciate it! Have a great day! (:

  • Can too much of a substance in an experiment cause an underreaction?

    I performed an experiment in my chemistry class today. The directions said to place various different substance the size of a small pea into a test tube. This instruction was not extremely precise so if I added to much of the substance, is it possible that an underreaction occurred?

    For example: In one section of the experiment, I worked with sodium chloride, nitric acid and silver nitrate. If I put more than the size of a small pea into the test tube of sodium chloride could the reaction be altered in any way? Under or over reaction possibly?

    Please explain thoroughly! Thank you so much! I appreciate it! Have a nice day. (:

  • Reference angle and exact value?

    Re-write cos(-110 degrees) as a function of a positive acute angle.

    I know that a positive acute angle is known as a reference angle. Also, my teacher said to sketch the graph to get a better understanding (which I did). I did -110 degrees minus 180 and got the answer of -cos 290. Am I correct? I was not in school the day we learned reference angles and exact value!

    Additionally....

    What is the exact value of: tan 5pi/3?

    I am not sure if I am correct. So, I converted 5pi/3 into degrees by multiplying this radian measure with 180/pi. I got tan300 degrees. Then I used a trick that I found to get - radical 3. Am I correct?

    Please explain thoroughly if I am incorrect. Thank you very much!! I appreciate it a lot!! Have a great day! (:
