    Default UT UIL Comp Sci "Mom, Send Money"

    http://www.cs.utexas.edu/~scottm/uil...blems_2011.pdf

    My current project in my high school Comp Sci AP class is to do number 2 on the link above, called "Mom, send money".
    I am extremely confused and every time I ask my teacher for help, he doesn't give me a lot of information. I'm fairly weak with arrays and I can't wrap my mind around how to do this. You don't have to just give me the answer, but can someone please help me or walk me through this?

    Moving to New To Java.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    First, try to do this on paper. How do you translate those lines with numbers to the money it's representing? Is there an algorithm? Can you write that down on paper? That's the hard part. If you have written that algorithm down, there's your program. All you need to do now is translate the written stuff into Java. That's the easy part.

    I completely agree with your teacher; all the information is in the texts; a nice set of exercises I must say.

    kind regards,
