/*Your task is to create the special functions used by this routine, which are shown in blue in the above program. You need to write the functions so that they can be used by the main routine as shown. In other words, do not change the way the functions are used, rather write your functions to accept the parameters and return the values needed to make the program work properly. Be careful to notice where pointers and variable addresses are used - the idea of this Lab is to practice writing code that uses pointers*/

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems as though this is just the code that the professor gave to you, and it's all written out what to do in comments. Take a stab at it before just posting here and trying to get a solution.


You just need to code divideArgs and fibArgs , as example your professor have already coded SwapArgs, just use the example and code the 2 functions, you are done with your homework.
