Is anyone Available??????
Is anyone available to help me out with the flowchart, thanks.

Ive never liked flowcharts, I always plan things out in my head and never need to have it written down. Basically, just write the statements that are in "my first method" in an English sentence in boxes, going one at a time. For instance the first box would say "Get the height of the jump and the amount of spins from the user", and you would put that in a box. Then draw an arrow down and make another box that says "Move the astronaut up the height needed" and then another arrow, then "Make the astronaut spin the amount of times that the user asked for", and so on (I can't tell you every box or else I would be doing your homework for you).

Its not that hard, and usually you do this first before you make the program. This might actually be helpful to you. Before making your next program, you should make a flowchart describing exactly what you want to do, like I just explained above. Then once you see what you want, you can make that in the program. This is best for people who need instructions on how to do things, but I am the kind of person that likes to fix things and learn as I go along, so I personally do not use flowcharts.

Big Twelve Rank
I am needing help with the same assignment of big 12 ranking. I have put together a animation, but something it's missing because the animation suppose to ask the user to enter a number from 1 to 12 and after the user enters it, it will re-ask if he wants to continue and if the user press yes it wil continue, if it press no then it will say goodbye, but that's where am stuck. This is what I got, if anyone can help, I will appreciate it greatly.

HI Everyone, Demeria Help
I corrected my animation and I am still stuck in a section in which I only need for the animation to say Goodbye if the users selects not to continue, but instead it repeats the same question of entering a number from 1-12. Please let me know if you can help, i am pretty sure it's something small that I am not noticing.

Here, I fixed it. I changed the boolean variable to "yesPicked" and turned its initial to true. I then put it into the first while statement and first if/else statement so that those would go on when yes is picked, and when it is not picked it would skip over them. I also took out all of the Yes or No options from each if/else and just put one at the bottom of the first if/else, so that after it tells you the number, no matter which number it is, it asks you Yes or No.

Did that help?

Hello, I'm working on this project can someone help me?
Create a world with an astronaut, moon surface, and Lunar Lander (LL). (Web Gallery). Using the “ask the user for a number” function, have the astronaut jump a specific height (but must be visible at all times). The value must be greater than zero, and if not, give and error message and repeat the question until a valid answer is given.

I have the most part, but can't get it to ask again until the valid answer is given.
Can anyone help?
