Default newbie C question


Hi

sorry to bother you all with this but im currently at college beginning to
learn C. I have a question ive been given which i need to code and answer
but i just dont understand what it wants or how to do it. could someone
please help out?

heres the question in full:

1. Read three single digit characters from the keyboard and
convert them into their numerical equivalent values (Hint: use getchar(),
subtract character zero from the digit character to convert it to its
numerical value.)

The program should test the digits and


a) print an appropriate message if the digits are identical
b) the average of the three digits
c) the minimum of the three digits
d) the maximum of the three digits
e) the percentage value of the smaller number with respect to the larger.

Thanx

Keith

Default newbie C question


The problem assignment you included explains how to input
and convert the characters, and the required outputs are
clearly specified and trivial to compute for anybody who
meets normal college entrance requirements. Between your
textbook and your instructor you should have all the help
you need; this (or any other) newsgroup is not suitable
for help with schoolwork. If you have used those
resources and are still lost, then you need to reexamine
what your purpose is in "learning C", because this is the
*easy* stuff; it gets much more challenging.

Default newbie C question


Hi,

This has nothing to do to C, and there is a tradition of not doing
homework problems (or giving solutions which would leave your teacher in
no doubt that it wasn't you who came up with them).

I imagine that your teacher wants you to do a problem which does the
following:
dave$ ./homework
3
4
8

Digits are not identical.
Average: 5.0
Minimum: 3
Maximum: 8
Percentage value of min wrt max: 37.5%
dave$

Or something like that.

Hope this helps,
Dave.

If you really do not understand the question you should be consulting
your instructor and/or rereading your textbook/course notes.

As far as I can see your question has nothing to do with C because once
you understand what is being asked writing the C code is just a matter
of whether you have learnt enough C to express the solution in terms of
C.
