Hi there. I'm Kurt!!
I have two algorithm problems.
I was wondering if you can check my answers for the first one and help me get a start with the second one:
1)Write an algorithm to compute the average of 5 numbers
Given: X1, X2, X3, X4, X5
Definition: Average:= Ave5 (X1, X2,X3,X4,X5)
Total = X1 + X2 + X3 + X4 + X5
Average = Total/5
2) Write an algorithm to get the names and ages of two people. Return the name of the person who is older (in format "x is older than y", where x and y are the names of the two people), unless the two people are the same age, in which case, return the message "x is the same age as y.
I'm having trouble writing an algorithm for this particular case. It's more complicated than what I am used to. Can someone give me an idea on how to start a problem like this one ? I have made a couple of assumptions:
Givens: X, Y
Definition: Age =: PerAge (X,Y)
Well... I'm pretty lost at this point
Thank you advance
