    Default 'Bottles of Beer' project

    There is a rhyme (a bit like 'Ten Green Bottles' ) called 'Bottles of Beer' which runs thus:

    4 bottles of beer on the wall,
    4 bottles of beer,
    Take one down, pass it around (hic),
    3 bottles of beer on the wall.

    3 bottles of beer on the wall,
    3 bottles of beer,
    Take one down, pass it around (hic),
    2 bottles of beer on the wall.

    2 bottles of beer on the wall,
    2 bottles of beer,
    Take one down, pass it around (hic),
    1 bottles of beer on the wall.

    1 bottles of beer on the wall,
    1 bottles of beer,
    Take one down, pass it around (hic),
    0 bottles of beer on the wall.

    ... well apart from the slight grammatical problem. Clearly the starting number can vary.

    I need help with the following:

    -Requests the starting value for 'Bottles of Beer' . (For this question assume the user always enters a sensible value.)

    -Loops the appropriate number of times

    -Prints a verse of the rhyme in each iteration

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, where exactely are you stuck, what have you done so far? Usually questions of the "here's my homework, do it for me" type don't get a lot of attention.

    Try solving each step of your problem in isolation (each of the three sentences above prepended with a hyphen). Then please feel free to come on back with your code (using code tags -- please see my signature below for details) and any specific questions you may have. Much luck!
