Default Assignment 5 - 07-23-2017, 12:49 AM

I just completed assignment five, solely and independently with no assistance from any of my classmates or anyone outside of God for that matter. I had been working on it for about 5 hours before I was able to configure the three phrases correctly. I was using the if/else function, but I could not get it to work the way I needed it to. I played around with it, verbally walking myself through what I needed to attempt to get the program to do(confusing), in order to get the results I needed. I was frustrated around hour three, but I kept at it! Said a prayer and kept using trial and error, writing the code line by line and playing it to see if it did what I needed it to do. Doing this line by line helped me to see where the breakdown started.

Eventually, I was able to get the equation set up correctly and to get it to state one of the three phrases based on the users response.

I'm glad that you are finally feeling comfortable with the program! This was probably one of the easier programs for me. I made a sheriff bouncer and a moon bar. My son thought that was hilarious when I just showed him. 5 hours is a lot of time for an assignment, but totally worth it once you finally "get it"!
