The first step to figuring out how to write the program is figuring out how to write the algorithm. How would you solve this problem with pencil and paper? Where would you start? What steps would you take?
well dave please clarify the reason. coz i am not an expert in c++. thanks in advance
The array? Because then you limit yourself to the array size. Without using an array I found that it took about 84 iterations to pass 5. So an array of 20 would not have been adequate.
Or the integer math? In integer math, 1 / 2 = 0. But floating point math, 1.0 / 2 = 0.5. If you take the integer result 0 and (implicitly) convert to floating point, you will have 0.0. You can see how this would seriously affect the calculation.
