Hi I am completely new to the programming and I got 0/10 on my last algorithm in pseudo code. I need to write an algorithm using pseudo code to score a tennis match. The algorithm takes two scores and the player who won the point as input and retuen the new scores. Any help?

Yes, plenty. But you'll have to make an attempt first. No effort on your part results in no effort on our part.

Sorry about that, here is what I have managed so far.

Prompt user for 3 values
int score_1, score_2, player;

player = 1,2;

if (winner = 1) then
score_1 = score_1 +15
else
score_2 = score_2 +15

if score_1, score_2 >= 40 then
game
End if;

I'm thinking I use else so if player 2 wins then he gets the +15 score instead of adding another if statement.

Is this a running score program? Are you breaking the match down into sets and games? It's possible that you're oversimplifying, but I can't be sure without a more detailed description of the problem.

It's broken down the specific set so that if you entered 15 15 2 the output would be 15 30 and then you continue input until a player has won the set. Once the set if finished it outputs game.
