Programming Basics: Selection & Repetition
For the following problems, diagram a FOR loop or a WHILE loop depending on which is MOST
appropriate. Use Excel as a diagramming tool (it is okay to use another computer-based tool
as long as you can properly format your flowchart). Use a font that does not print smaller
than a standard 10pt font. Be careful when you resize that you maintain a 10pt font when it is
printed (i.e. the font should be about the size you see here on the printed assignment).
1. Draw a flowchart for a program that will obtain 10 exam scores from the user and determine
whether the score is passing (a score of 60 or above) or failing. Your algorithm should count the
number of passing and failing scores. Output the average of all of the scores, the number of
failing scores, and the number of passing scores.
List the input, output, and any additional processing variables necessary for this program.
Perform a desk check with the following values: 75, 25, 51, 49, 88, 12, 22, 23, 52, and 78.
FORMAT desk checks as covered in class including variables and output.
2. Write pseudocode for Aunt Ellen’s Egg Ranch. The user will enter the number of eggs
gathered and the program will output the number of dozens as well as the number of excess
eggs. Continue this process until a negative number is entered. For the calculations include the
NOTE: Include the formulas with the keyword CALCULATE put all keywords in uppercase
Example Input/Output: (user input is green → user output is blue)
Enter the number of eggs gathered: 43
You have 3 dozen and 7 eggs.
Enter the number of eggs gathered: 32
You have 2 dozen and 8 eggs.
Enter the number of eggs gathered: -999
List the inputs, outputs & any additional processing variables necessary for this program.
Perform a desk check with the following input values: 24, 8, 15, and -999.
TURN IN (in the FOLLOWING ORDER) – stapled with your name above.
1 – Turn in the first page of this assignment as a coversheet.
2 – Problem #1 → Flowchart followed by the typed desk check
3 – Problem #2 → Pseudo-code followed by the typed desk check
Be sure to start each problem on a new page, and staple your work.
